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.

Description: Sociolinguistic Studies is the new title of Estudios de Sociolinguistica http://www.sociolinguistica.uvigo.es a journal founded in 2000 at the University of Vigo (Spain), and indexed/abstracted in the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS); Latindex; Linguistics Abstracts (LA); Linguistics & Language Behavior Abstracts (LLBA); MLA International Bibliography; SocINDEX; Sociological Abstracts; and Bibliographie Linguistique/Linguistic Bibliography. Sociolinguistic Studies will be published at United Kingdom by Equinox Publishing House (www.equinoxpub.com). There are three issues per volume year (April, August, and December), the first issue, with the new title, is due in April 2007. Sociolinguistic Studies is a peer-reviewed journal in two formats: online and in hard copy, internationally diffused and distributed (ISSN: 1750-8649 -hard-, ISSN: 1750-8657 -online). Sociolinguistic Studies offers a linguistic and cultural bridge between the Romance world -particularly the Spanish and Latin American world- and the English-speaking world. The journal publishes substantial research papers, discussion notes, reviews and review articles (the Book Review Editor is Aneta Pavlenko, Temple University), and regularly publishes thematic issues. The editors invite contributions in English, Spanish or French (75% of the contents of the journal are in English). Edited in Galicia (Spain), the journal pays special attention to minority languages and cultures, language contact and change, linguistic diversity, language revival, shift and loss, language and social inequalities, and language planning and policy. We consider that bilingualism and multilingualism is an essential field linking sociolinguistics with other disciplines (psycholinguistics, linguistic anthropology, pedagogy, etc.). The journal will also pay special attention to theoretical and methodological contributions from sociology, social psychology or anthropology that can give consistency to the theoretical and methodological principles of sociolinguistics, and to make known the conceptual evolution in the social sciences among sociolinguists. Sociolinguistic Studies takes an ecumenical approach to the different schools, methodological principles or research orientations within sociolinguistic research and also accepts contributions from related fields such as pragmatics, discourse analysis, conversational analysis, interactional linguistics, language acquisition and socialization, linguistic anthropology, ethnomethodology and the ethnography of communication. Papers should be limited to approximately 7.000 words (Din A4 size), in Word-PC format. For further details, please contact the journal Editors. Please send submissions (preferably in electronic format) to the Editors: Fernando Ramallo (framallo@uvigo.es) and Xoan Paulo Rodriguez-Yanez (xoanp@uvigo.es).
