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'
There has been relatively little previous research on the written language skills of older children with German as their second language. This study uses the theoretical perspective of written language development research to explore the question of whether the syntactic written language skills of monolingual high school and college students differ consistently from those of multilingual students.
