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'
Oldřich Leška (1927–1997), was a member of the post-war generation of the Prague School of linguistics and the author of a series of texts published in journals and volumes in which he treated various aspects of the teachings of the Prague School and portrayed several of its prominent personalities. The present volume contains his texts which are less accessible, being written in Czech or published in not widely distributed journals or volumes.
