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 book addresses the nature of the interface between conceptual and linguistic structure. One of the important challenges facing us is to find a substantive theory of the relation between meanings as linguistic entities and real world entities. This book attempts to provide such a theoretical framework.
