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.

Review:

In my review of Sipt�r and T�rkenczy's Phonology of Hungarian,
<http://linguistlist.org/issues/12/12-2725.html>,
I made the following incorrect statement:

This somewhat negative view is supported by the fact that,
according to S+T, /kp/ is actually found in ten monomorphemic words
(page 129: Table 17).

There are actually no examples of -kp- monomorphemic clusters--
the ten examples are of -pk-. I think the other arguments against
positing a constraint to explain this gap still stand, however,
and welcome further feedback.
