Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

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'

Critical Multilingualism Studies

Call Deadline: 31-Dec-2013

Call Information:
Editor's note: This is a third call for papers. For more information, see the CMS website here: (http://cms.arizona.edu/index.php/multilingual).

Critical Multilingualism Studies is currently seeking submissions for a volume on Comparative Multilingualisms: Paradigms, Disciplines, Landscapes. Prospective contributions to this special issue of CMS will place regional, hemispheric, disciplinary and local multilingualisms in an explicitly comparative dialogue with one another, in order to provide a more adequate composite picture of how, and how well, ideas about multilingual practice are circulating from place to place, from language to language, and from scholarly field to scholarly field.

Contributions might include:
•
- essays considering how pairs of fields —such as comparative literature and applied linguistics, or translation studies and geography— can improve the way they interpret and respond to each others' enduring questions about multilingualism

-• historical, theoretical, or ethnographic studies on how multilingualism is perceived and practiced in one context/locality, as contrasted with another
•
- critical interventions on how models of language plurality are exported, circulated, or trafficked globally, and whether these are implicitly based on a set of regional and or disciplinary premises
•
- accounts of how and why scholars, policy-makers, SLA methodologists, or software developers may misapprehend the multilingualism of another geopolitical context
•
- studies of how "multilingualism" is treated as a concept or phenomenon in various languages, dialects, or cultural traditions —and what these differences reveal about the emerging axia of "multilingualism studies"
