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.

Title: The Grammar of Negation
Subtitle: A Constraint-Based Approach
Written By: Jong-mi Kim
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=1575862298
Series Title: Dissertations in Linguistics
Description:

This book addresses three fundamental questions in the study of negation:
What are the main ways of expressing sentential negation? What are the
distributional properties of lexically-encoded negative elements? And, what
implications do the answers to these two questions have for the theory of
grammar? In answering these questions, Jong-Bok Kim investigates various
aspects of negation in Korean, English, French and Italian. Addressing both
empirical and theoretical issues relating to negation in these languages,
he develops a nonderivational, lexicalist analysis within the
constraint-based framework of Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar. This
work demonstrates that a constraint-based approach can capture the
distributional possibilities of negative elements and explain related
phenomena simply through their lexical properties and the interaction of
the elementary morphosyntactic and valence properties of syntactic heads.
The resulting constraint-based theory allows a conservative division of
labor between morphology and syntax.
