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: A Neurobiological Theory and Method of Language Acquisition
Written By: Daniel Scott Janik
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Language Acquisition 10
Description:

A Neurobiological Theory and Method of Language Acquisition
Daniel S. Janik

Intercultural Communications College, Honolulu
Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine (FACPM) and Fellow of
the American Association of Integrative Medicine (FAAIM)

This monograph is NOT about teaching - it’s about EFFECTIVE LEARNING from a
perspective that leads to an entirely new form of learning and language
acquistion involving transformational discovery, mentorship and
interpretation.
Its roots are as old as Socrates. Linguists, biologists, anatomists,
physiologists, psychologists, sociologists and physicians in the tradition
of the "German School" of learning have contributed over the centuries to
what is now nothing less than a revolution in learning, and the “business
of teaching.”
In this seminal work, I have drawn from contemporary clinical and
experimental data beginning with effective traumatic learning to develop a
Neurobiological theory of learning, including methodology and tenets. When
applied in a traditional language classroom setting, the results have been
nothing short of astounding.
With its focus on language acquisition and learning, this monograph is a
treasure-trove of new information for educators, linguists, "teachers,"
tutors, psychologists, physicians and researchers interested in
transforming a field that has remained in the "dark ages" for too long.
