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'

Subtitle: A Discourse Approach
Written By: Ronald Scollon

Series Title: Language in Society
Description:

Note: This is a copy of a previously published book.

The third edition of this lively introduction serves as a guide to the main
concepts and problems of intercultural communication. As the field has
evolved, new trends and directions of research have emerged; this fully
revised edition explores many of these while maintaining the core of the
classic book.  The volume includes a new chapter devoted to forms of
discourse, which examines how different modes and media, such as the
Internet, affect cross-cultural communication. Expanded discussions on
advances in information technology, gender discourse, and sexuality are
also included, as are discussions of core areas of interest such as the
discourse of corporations and professional organizations and
intergenerational discourse.In the revision, the authors have also made
changes designed to integrate the book fully within the classroom,
including end-of-chapter discussion questions, further references, and a
Researching Interdiscourse Communication section for student projects.
Grounded in interactional sociolinguistics and discourse analysis, this
work integrates theoretical principles and methodological advice,
presenting students, researchers, and practitioners with a comprehensive
and unified resource.
