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: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 41
Description:

Today, young people write in their leisure time far more than they did 15
years ago. Most often they use new media to do their writing. This book
explores whether the frequent writing of short messages and e-mails and
participation in chats and social networks like Facebook have an influence
on writing in school. Are there any similarities and relationships between
the texts written in school and the private texts? For the first time,
based on comprehensive data from Swiss students, this book provides
empirical answers to these questions.
