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: Optimality Theory, Phonological Acquisition and Disorders
Written By: Daniel A. Dinnsen
Judith A. Gierut
Series Title: Advances in Optimality Theory
Description:

Focusing on the phonologies of children with functional (non-organic)
speech disorders, this volume reports the latest findings in optimality
theory, phonological acquisition and disorders. The book is based on
typological, cross-sectional, longitudinal, and experimental evidence from
over 200 children. It stands out because of the unique test case that the
population offers to optimality theory, particularly with respect to
puzzles of opacity, lawful orders of acquisition, and language
learnability. Beyond its theoretical significance, this research holds
clinical relevance for the assessment and treatment of disordered
populations, most notably the systematic prediction of learning outcomes.
The volume bridges the gap between theory and application by showing how
each informs the other. It is intended for linguists, psychologists,
speech pathologists, second-language instructors and those interested in
the latest developments in phonological theory and its applied extensions.
