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'
This volume provides a comprehensive view of the central issues in contemporary semantic theory. New articles by leading researchers in the field give an introductory account of previous work along with a presentation of new innovations and results. Thus the Handbook is both an authoritative guide to the major developments of linguistic semantics and a significant contribution to the current research. The book will be invaluable both to students requiring a complete and up-to-date survey of work in semantics, and to the specialist engaged in research on particular problems in semantic theory. The articles in the Handbook are written in an accessible style and include detailed references. In addition, the volume includes an extensive central bibliography which is intended to serve as a research tool for students and linguists working in the field.
