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: What is Morphology?
Subtitle: Second Edition
Written By: Mark Aronoff
Kirsten Fudeman
URL: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1405194677.html
Series Title: Fundamentals of Linguistics
Description:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

Assuming only the most basic background in linguistics, What is Morphology?
provides a concise, critical introduction to the central ideas and
perennial problems of morphology. Designed to familiarize beginning
students and specialists alike with the importance of morphology as a
subject of research, this reader-friendly volume moves organically from the
morphological “facts of everyday life” to important relationships with
phonology, syntax, and semantics.

This second edition builds on the previous one, expanding chapters on
morphological productivity and the mental lexicon, and adding coverage of
experimental and computational methods. Aronoff and Fudeman have revised
and expanded the exercises and added suggestions for further reading to
each chapter. Cross-linguistic data from Kujamaat Joola, a West African
language, is used throughout the book to explain and clarify new ideas
presented. What is Morphology? equips readers with the skills to analyze a
wealth of classic morphological issues through engaging narration and by
direct example.
