Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

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'

Description:

A Simplified Grammar of the Pali Language

E. Müller

I intended to help the students of Buddhistical literature, by collecting the
idiomatical pecularities of the sacred language, comparing it chiefly to
Sanskrit, and in a few cases also to other Indian vernaculars. As the
publication of Pali texts has taken so wide dimensions during the last ten
years, I thought it would not be out of place to consider and work out the new
materials that have come into our possession through these books, mostly
unknown to those who made Pali grammar an object of their study (from the
preface).

Contents: Alphabet, pronunciation, vowels, change of vowels, change of
quantity, nasal vowels, vowels added or dropped, consonants, general
remarks referring to consonants of different classes, compound consonants,
rules of Sandhi, declension, comparison of adjectives, pronominal inflexion,
numerals, conjugation, Valâhassajâtaka (Re-edition; originally published 1884
in London; written in English)
