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'

Description:

This volume provides an overview of four currently booming areas in the
discipline of corpus linguistics. The first section is concerned with
studies of the history and development of morphological and syntactic
phenomena in English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese. The second section
contains case studies investigating the functions and contexts of use of
different morphological and syntactic forms in English, Spanish, Russian,
and Mandarin Chinese. The third section contains studies in the field of
genre and register from settings as diverse as health, call center,
academic, and legal discourse. The final section features papers refining
existing, and exploring new, corpus-linguistic methods: dispersions, text
mining, corpus similarity, as well as the development of extraction
patterns and the evaluation of tagging methods.
