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'
This book is about the relationship between language and the society that uses it. It specifically aims to discover what drove and drives the French to concentrate so much on language, on what it is that characterises their approach, and on the explanations for the policies governments have pursued in the past and present.
