Title: English Prepositions Explained
Subtitle: Revised edition
Written By: Seth Lindstromberg
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Z%20157
Description:

This completely revised and expanded edition of English Prepositions
Explained (EPE), originally published in 1998, covers approximately 100
simple, compound, and phrasal English prepositions of space and time – with
the focus being on short prepositions such as at, by, in, and on. Its
target readership includes teachers of ESOL, pre-service translators and
interpreters, undergraduates in English linguistics programs, studious
advanced learners and users of English, and anyone who is inquisitive about
the English language. The overall aim is to explain how and why meaning
changes when one preposition is swapped for another in the same context.
While retaining most of the structure of the original, this edition says
more about more prepositions. It includes many more figures – virtually all
new. The exposition draws on recent research, and is substantially founded
on evidence from digitalized corpora, including frequency data. EPE gives
information and insights that will not be found in dictionaries and grammar
handbooks.
