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'
Geert Booij's popular textbook on the internal structure of words has been revised and updated. It includes a new chapter on the field's most notorious problem: the status of the word. It also has a full glossary of terms. The book covers every aspect of theory and the practical analysis of words and is the only introductory text to explore the role of morphology in processes of linguistic change and in the operations in the mind.
