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'

Title: Wittgenstein: Understanding And Meaning, Second Edition
Subtitle: Volume 1 of an Analytical Commentary on the Philosophical Investigations, Part II: Exegesis §§1-184
Written By: Gordon P. Baker
P.M.S. Hacker
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/140511987X
Description:

This is a new edition of the first volume of G.P.Baker and P.M.S. Hacker’s
definitive reference work on Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations.

- Takes into account much material that was unavailable when the first
edition was written.

- Following Baker's death in 2002, P.M.S. Hacker has thoroughly revised the
first volume, rewriting many essays and sections of exegesis completely.

- Part One – the Essays – now includes two completely new essays: 'Meaning
and Use' and 'The Recantation of a Metaphysician'.

- Part Two – Exegesis §§1–184 – has been thoroughly revised in the light of
the electronic publication of Wittgenstein's Nachlass, and includes many
new interpretations of the remarks, a history of the composition of the
book, and an overview of its structure.

- The revisions will ensure that this remains the definitive reference work
on Wittgenstein’s masterpiece for the foreseeable future.
