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: University of Basrah Studies in English
Edited By: Jinan Fedhil Al-Hajaj
Graeme Davis
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11325
Series Title: Contemporary Studies in Descriptive Linguistics. Vol. 16
Description:

These papers represent a cross-section of the research work conducted in
the Department of English of the College of Education at the University of
Basrah, Basra, Iraq. It is anticipated that their publication will
encourage future studies by placing work in English Studies from the
University of Basrah in an international perspective for the first time in
decades. During the last couple of years, research work at the University
of Basrah has been increasing and developing. The rehabilitation and
reactivation of local journals has facilitated publication which for a long
time had been halted. The present volume comprises research embodying
different strands of the work of the Department of English, and showing
recent trends in the study of linguistics and literature at the University
of Basrah. Papers contributed represent work in various fields of study
including phonetics and phonology, linguistics, ELT, pragmatics, discourse
analysis, and literary stylistics.
