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'

Explorations in Linguistics: An Online Journal of Undergraduate Research
Call Deadline: 01-Jan-2015
Explorations in Linguistics: An Online Journal of Undergraduate Research is published twice a year by the Linguistics Program at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. Its goal is to promote undergraduate student research in all areas of linguistics. The journal is directly overseen by an undergraduate student editor and reviewers with input from linguistics faculty.
Submissions of two types are invited: (1) short essays (400-700 words) that explore or make unique observations about interesting linguistic features encountered in everyday life (e.g., an overheard conversational interaction or a written language sample such as a billboard or a greeting card); and (2) original, data-based research projects (5,000 words or fewer) on a linguistic topic. Submissions that are either the result of a class assignment or that represent independently-conducted research are equally welcomed.
Please see the journal's website http://www.sju.edu/int/academics/cas/linguistics/journal.html for detailed information regarding submissions. Manuscripts are accepted for review on a continual basis.
