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: Wahrnehmungsdialektologie
Subtitle: Das Obersächsische im Alltagsverständnis von Laien
Written By: Christina Ada Anders
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110221336-1
Series Title: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 36
Description:

How do ordinary people perceive regional modes of speech? This question is
often posed at present within German dialectology, without however having
produced a satisfactory answer. As part of an empirical pilot study in
Saxony, Saxon-Anhalt, Thuringia and South Brandenburg, the present
investigation uses the example of Upper Saxon to examine how the structures
of everyday language-related knowledge can be observed and described, to
look at the parameters within which this knowledge is organised and to
determine the role played by extra-linguistic factors in the perception of
dialects.
