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: Totalitarian Political Discourse?
Subtitle: Tolerance and Intolerance in Eastern and East Central European Countries -Diachronic and Synchronic Aspects - In collaboration with Karsten Senkbeil
Edited By: Beatrix Kreß
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?263276
Series Title: Hildesheimer Schriften zur Interkulturellen Kommunikation. Hildesheim Studies in Intercultural Communication
Description:

This volume contributes to the study of political and especially totalitarian language in the countries of the former Eastern Bloc, by bringing together not only diachronic and synchronic aspects, but also by including different media types, such as newspapers, the internet, and different discourse types, e.g. environmental and gender discourses. The combination of historical and contemporary perspectives in many contributions add comparative dimensions, while also shedding light on relevant socio-political developments and phenomena in those post-communist countries, thus uniting linguistic methods with cultural studies.
