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: Linguistische Studien in Ostafrika
Written By: Carl Meinhof
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia 09
Description:

Vom August des Jahres 1902 bis zum Februar 1903 habe ich mich in Sansibar
und Deutsch-Ostafrika aufgehalten, um meine phonetischen Beobachtungen an
Ort und Stelle nachzuprüfen und zu vervollständigen. Ich habe meine
Untersuchungen auf eine große Anzahl von Sprachen der Bantugruppe
ausgedehnt und auch versucht, in Sprachen einzudringen, welche nicht zu
dieser Gruppe gehören. In einigen Sprachen, wie in den Sprachen der Mbugu
und der Ndorobo fehlten alle Vorarbeiten, in anderen wie dem Šambala waren
umfassende Arbeiten schon geschaffen.
Im Band sind u.a. grammatische Abhandlungen zu folgenden Sprachen
enthalten: Suaheli, Šambala, Namwezi, Sukuma, Digo, Nika, Pokomo, Bondei,
Zigula, Mbugu, Dzalamo, Makua;

(Re-edition; originally published 1907 in Berlin MSOS X, III Abt.;
written in German)
