Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

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: Dutch Contributions to the Fourteenth International Congress of Slavists
Subtitle: Ohrid, September 10-16, 2008. Linguistics.
Edited By: Peter Houtzagers
Janneke Kalsbeek
Jos Schaeken
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=SSGL+34
Series Title: Studies in Slavic and General Linguistics Vol. 34
Description:

This volume contains articles by 17 slavists from the Low Countries.
Although they are all about Slavic linguistics, they cover a wide range of
subjects and their theoretical implications are often not restricted to
slavistics alone. Most contributions deal with Russian or Slavic in
general, but South and West Slavic are also represented. The reader who
knows the strong points for which Dutch slavistics is traditionally known
and appreciated will not be disappointed: s/he will find papers on syntax
and semantics (Fortuin, Van Helden, Honselaar, Keijsper, Tribušinina),
aspectology (Barentsen, Genis), philology (Veder), historical Slavic
phonology and morphology (Derksen, Kortlandt, Vermeer), dialectology
(Houtzagers, Pronk), the study of sentence intonation (Odé) and papers
representing crossroads between these disciplines: philology and historical
linguistics (Hendriks, Schaeken), aspectology and philology (Kalsbeek).
Apart from its quality in the linguistic fields enumerated here, Dutch
Slavic linguistics is known for its empirical approach: the main goal is to
find explanations for linguistic reality. Theory is relevant inasmuch as it
helps us to find such explanations and not for its own sake. Though each
and every paper in this volume exemplifies this empirical attitude, it
might be especially illustrative to mention that almost all authors who
studied the larger contemporary Slavic languages made extensive use of
language corpus resources, part of which were collected at the University
of Amsterdam.
