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: A Manual of English Phonetics and Phonology
Written By: Paul Skandera
Peter Burleigh
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/a-manual-of-english-phonetics-and-phonology-8441.html
Series Title: narr studienbücher
Description:

This is a fully integrated course book aimed at university students of English
in the German-speaking region. It presents a staged and clearly developed
introduction to the theory of pronunciation combined with a wealth of
transcription exercises and an accompanying CD. The book requires no prior
knowledge of linguistics. From the outset, it explains key concepts in easy-
to-understand language, highlights key terms in the text for easy review, and
gives translations of many of the terms into German. Additionally, a glossary
provides students with a handy quick reference. The transcription exercises
guide students from exploratory tasks to basic transcription to the more
demanding transcription of natural dialogue, and all exercises are supplied
with annotated solutions. The book is carefully divided into lessons and
exercises which can be managed in 12 two-hour classes, leaving enough
time for review and examination in a university term of 14 weeks or more.

In this second edition, the book has been thoroughly revised and adapted for
better readability and increased consistency in the use of terminology.
