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: A Rainbow of Corpora
Subtitle: Corpus linguistics and the langauges of the world
Edited By: Anthony Mark McEnery
Andrew Wilson
Paul Rayson
Description:

The aim of this volume is to showcase the range of corpus-based linguistic research currently being carried out on languages other than English. The papers included report on work carried out on Arabic, Bulgarian, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Biblical Greek, Biblical Hebrew, Medieval Irish, Korean, Romanian and Swedish, including a number of regional and social variants. They also address a range of areas as diverse as corpus design, corpus annotation, register analysis, syntax, and quantitative linguistics. The papers in this volume will leave the reader in no doubt that corpus-based research is now being conducted for a whole "rainbow of languages".
