Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

By Thomas Hoffmann

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: Some Aspects of Speech and the Brain
Written By: Susanne Fuchs
Hélène Loevenbruck
Pascal Perrier
Daniel Pape
URL: http://www.peterlang.de/index.cfm?vID=57630&vLang=E
Description:

What happens in the brain when humans are producing speech or when they are
listening to it? This is the main focus of the book, which includes a
collection of 13 articles, written by researchers at some of the foremost
European laboratories in the fields of linguistics, phonetics, psychology,
cognitive sciences, and neurosciences. The articles review progress
achieved over the last twenty years in these areas, and present recent
experimental results addressing issues of pre-lexical and semantic
processing, brain activity in the perception of voicing, pitch, prosody,
and pointing. A large part of the book deals with brain activation in
speech and language pathologies: language-related aspects in epilepsy,
Parkinson's disease, dyslexia and stuttering. Other contributions discuss
speech acquisition modelling, syllabification and lexical access, and the
specificity of speech in relation to other biological motor tasks.
