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'

Description: Editor: John E. Richardson - University of Newcastle, UK 4 issues per year Print ISSN: 1740-5904 Online ISSN: 1740-5912 Please see the journal homepage for current subscription rates. Critical Discourse Studies is an interdisciplinary journal for the social sciences. Its primary aim is to publish critical research that advances our understanding of how discourse figures in social processes, social structures, and social change. Critical Discourse Studies has been established in response to the proliferation of critical discourse studies across the social sciences and humanities. We will consider for publication papers that meet the needs of scholars in diverse disciplines and areas of study which develop critical perspectives on the relationship between discourse and social dynamics. Relevant areas and disciplines include: anthropology, communication, linguistics, sociology, politics, political economy, education, psychology, media studies, geography, urban studies, cultural studies, management studies, literary studies, history, technology studies, legal studies, philosophy, gender studies, migration studies, ethnic studies and others. We also welcome papers which connect critical academic research with practical concerns and agendas, including those of activist and grassroots political movements. The scope of critical discourse studies is not limited to linguistic studies, or articles that are primarily empirical or analytical. Critical examination of non-linguistic phenomena that take a significant discourse orientation, as well as theoretical and methodological papers that advance critical understandings of discursive phenomena, are welcomed. Recognising the diversity, depth, and history of scholarship in the growth of critical discourse studies, no particular theoretical, disciplinary, or methodological "schools" or paradigms will be privileged over others in the selection of papers for publication. The primary criteria for publication are originality, scholarly rigor, coherence of argument, relevance and timeliness of research. Critical Discourse Studies is an international and interdisciplinary journal. The membership of its advisory board reflects the cultural, geographical, theoretical, and disciplinary diversity of the journal and its readership. Critical Discourse Studies encourages contributions from both new and established scholars. The journal recognises that the new and rapidly changing social relations of the current age call for new approaches to understanding the waves of change that continue to impact upon social, political, economic, and cultural formations. Therefore the editors strongly encourage the submission of papers that advance new approaches and new understandings that bridge disciplinary and cultural boundaries. Critical Discourse Studies aims to be accessible. It aims for papers that are written clearly, explain key terms and concepts in an accessible way for readers at many levels, and recognise the needs and interests of its diverse community of readers.
