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'

Series Title: Handbook of Pragmatics 12
Description:

In collaboration with Eline Versluys

This encyclopaedia of one of the major fields of language studies is a
continuously updated source of state-of-the-art information for anyone
interested in language use. The IPrA Handbook now contains nearly 5,000
pages. It provides easy access - for scholars with widely divergent
backgrounds but with convergent interests in the use and functioning of
language - to the different topics, traditions and methods which together
make up the field of Pragmatics, broadly conceived as 'the cognitive,
social and cultural study of language and communication'.

The Handbook of Pragmatics is a unique reference work for researchers: the
main body of the Handbook is produced in loose-leaf format in 3-ring
binders and is accompanied by the bound Manual. The loose-leaf Handbook
forms the basis of the Handbook proper giving an overview of the subfields,
traditions, methodologies and concepts of Pragmatics. The Handbook is used
as a basis for the online version: the Handbook of Pragmatics Online
has been expanded and revised annually since 2003. Future versions will add
further records and will include updates, rewritings and extensive
revisions of already existing records. The Handbook of Pragmatics
Online is available from http://www.benjamins.com/online with a free
90-day trial. The Handbook is also available in combination with the
Bibliography of Pragmatics Online at a discounted rate. 30%
discount for a complete set order (Manual + Installments 1995-2007).
