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: Talking Texts
Subtitle: How Speech and Writing Interact in School Learning
Edited By: Rosalind Horowitz
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/Talking-Texts-isbn9780805853056
Description:

This volume examines how oral and written language function in school
learning, and how oral texts can be successfully inter-connected to the
written texts that are used on a daily basis in schools. Rather than argue
for the prominence of one over the other, the goal is to help the reader
gain a rich understanding of how both might work together to create a new
discourse that ultimately creates new knowledge.

Talking Texts:

-Provides historical background for the study of talk and text

-Presents examples of children’s and adolescents’ natural conversations as
analyzed by linguists

-Addresses talk as it interfaces with domains of knowledge taught in
schools to show how talk is related to and may be influenced by the
structure, language, and activities of a specific discipline.

Bringing together seminal lines of research to create a cohesive picture of
discourse issues germane to classrooms and other learning settings, this
volume is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students,
classroom teachers, and curriculum specialists across the fields of
discourse studies, literacy and English education, composition studies,
language development, sociolinguistics, and applied linguistics.
