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'
Twenty-two scholars in sixteen European countries chart the English invasion of their national languages over the last five decades. They examine the particular groups of English words that have been adopted and the ways in which their meanings have been modified and in some cases transformed. They also consider the popular and political reactions over Europe to the influx of anglicisms.
