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'

Working Papers of the Linguistics Circle

Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2013

Call Information:
WPLC Volume 23
Call for papers

Theme: Minority Languages


The Working Papers of the Linguistics Circle of the University of Victoria (WPLC), web.uvic.ca/~wplc, is a working papers journal published by the graduate students of Department of Linguistics at the University of Victoria. The volumes go back to 1981 and include published proceedings from the Northwest Linguistics Conference, as well as general and thematic volumes. In 2010 we switched to exclusive online publishing through the University of Victoria Libraries' instance of the Open Journal System (OJS) software.

We are currently accepting submissions for Volume 23. The theme of this volume is Minority Languages. We encourage submissions from both Applied Linguistics, as well as Theoretical Linguistics, that in any way touch upon the topic of Minority Languages.

We understand that Minority Languages is a broad topic, and are hoping to receive submissions where a minority language is either the subject of a linguistic analysis or the topic itself. While we often associate indigenous languages with minority languages, we would also like to bring your attention to other topics that may not initially come to mind, but would be excellent additions to this volume: heritage languages, non-standard dialects, sign languages, regional languages, language revitalization, and the list could go on. We are looking forward to reading a diverse selection of submissions.

Submissions from both students and faculty are encouraged. We kindly ask that student submissions (both undergraduate and graduate) be accompanied by an email from a supervising professor, sent directly to our email account (wplc@uvic.ca), indicating that the material is of publishable quality. Without such a note there is no guarantee that papers will be reviewed. Please forward any questions to wplc@uvic.ca.

To submit, visit our website for details: web.uvic.ca/~wplc and follow the submission instructions. Papers submitted by email will not be considered. Papers should not exceed 30 pages including references. Please follow the WPLC style guide and other author guidelines available at: http://journals.uvic.ca/index.php/WPLC/about/submissions#authorGuidelines

We look forward to your submissions.
