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: Processing and Producing Head-final Structures
Edited By: Hiroko Yamashita

Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

This book is the first collection of studies on an important yet under-investigated
linguistic phenomenon, the processing and production of head-final syntactic
structures. Until now, the remarkable progress made in the field of human
sentence processing had been achieved largely by investigating head-initial
languages such as English. The goal of the present volume is to deepen our
understanding by examining head-final languages and offering a comparison of
those results to findings from head-initial languages. This book brings together
cross-linguistic investigations of languages with prominent head-final structures
such as Basque, Chinese, German, Japanese, Korean, and Hindi. It will inform
readers of linguistics with both theoretical and experimental backgrounds, as it
provides accounts of previous studies, offers experimentally-based theoretical
discussions, and includes experimental stimuli in the original languages.
