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.

Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 86
Description:

This volume offers a collection of papers which seek to provide further
insights into the way scientific and technical knowledge is communicated
(i.e., written, transmitted, and translated) nowadays, not only in the academic
sphere but also in society as a whole. Language in science has traditionally
been valued for prioritising objective, propositional content; however,
interpersonal and pragmatic dimensions as well as translation perspectives
are worth exploring in order to better understand the mechanisms of
specialised communication.

Accordingly, the contributions in this volume cover topics of special interest
to scholars and researchers in the fields of linguistics and translation, such
as the popularisation and transmission of scientific knowledge via ICTs;
terminology and corpus-based studies in scientific discourse; genres and
discourse in scientific and technical communication; the history and evolution
of scientific language; and translation of scientific texts.
