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'

Special Issue of the Asian Journal of Applied Linguistics
Theme: English as a Lingua Franca in Institutions of Higher Education in Asia
We interpret lingua franca as applying not only to communication within an institution but also between institutions and in a broader sense to the communication needed by individuals or groups within the institution to form or participate in global academic, professional, and social partnerships.
Sub-topics include but are not restricted to: - the teaching, learning or use of English to facilitate academic communication within or between institutions or with the wider academic community - the use of English for intercultural exchanges - the use of English for administrative purposes within the institution - the use of English to promote inclusivity - the status of English within higher education in Asia - the attitudes of students/teachers/administrators to the use of English - contextual influences on the use of English within or between institutions - the relationship between the use of English and internationalisation
We are equally interested in papers which discuss contexts in which English as a lingua franca is enabled, impeded or possibly both.
