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'
Grundlagen der Anglistik und Amerikanistik, Band 35
Many students of English struggle with phonetic transcription. This book is intended as a companion for students from the start of their linguistic training up to graduate or postgraduate level when they may analyse and transcribe authentic speech. It provides background as well as practical information (such as where to find phonetic fonts for the computer) and gives tips on how to avoid common mistakes. There are over 80 exercises relating to all levels of difficulty. A key is provided for both British and American pronunciation for most of them.
