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: Relative Constructions in European Non-Standard Varieties
Written By: Adriano Murelli
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110238785-1
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 50
Description:

Cross-linguistic studies on relative constructions in European languages are
often centred on standard varieties as described in reference grammars. This
volume breaks with the tradition in that it investigates relative constructions in
non-standard varieties from a multidisciplinary perspective and addresses a
crucial question: what does Europe's typological panorama actually look like?
