This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Title: Phi-Theory
Subtitle: Phi-Features Across Modules and Interfaces
Edited By: Daniel Harbour
David Adger
Susana Béjar
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199213771
Description:

Phi-features, such as person, number, and gender, present a rare
opportunity for syntacticians, morphologists and semanticists to
collaborate on a research enterprise in which they all have an equal stake
and which they all approach with data and insights from their own fields.
This volume is the first to attempt to bring together these different
strands and styles of research. It presents the core questions, major
results, and new directions of this emergent area of linguistic theory and
shows how Phi-Theory casts light on the nature of interfaces and the
structure of the grammar. The book will interest scholars and students of
all aspects of linguistic theory at graduate level and above.
