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'
The analysis of legal texts in the context of legislation is a previously unexplored field of research. Consequently, this study examines the formation of legal norms using the example of the “online search”. Taking over 1000 texts as reference material, the study illuminates the discourse actors, the semantic struggles and the process of legal textual formulation involved in the legislation.
