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'
The question of the conditions, forms, and impact of felicitous dialogue has arisen in the broadest range of academic disciplines in the 20th century.

It reveals the history of discourse in the 20th century by reflecting on its idealization.
