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: Corpora, Language, Teaching, and Resources: From Theory to Practice
Edited By: Natalie Kübler
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?430054
Series Title: Etudes contrastives - Volume 12
Description:

This volume brings together a selection of papers originally presented at the
7th Teaching and Language Corpora Conference, which was held in Paris in
2006. The volume is divided into four parts and deals with the practice of
corpus use, learner corpora, the creation of resources and tools, and the
evaluation of resources. This book follows the TaLC tradition which takes into
account the great vitality and huge increase in computer facilities for using
corpora and creating resources in language teaching. Also, the book deals
with the teaching of language-related fields, such as translation, linguistics,
terminology, or even literature and cultural studies. Moreover, some articles
in this volume tackle the more theoretical concepts of corpus linguistics that
can be introduced in language teaching. Other articles deal with the more and
more user-friendly tools that are created to help linguists compile resources
appropriate to language teaching. By showing the diversity of the proposed
approaches, of corpus types, and corpus analyses that can be used in
teaching, this volume allows readers to follow the extremely dynamic
evolution of the domain.
