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.

Series Title: Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 3
Description:

The annual "Going Romance" conference has developed into the major
European discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance
languages where current ideas about language in general and about Romance
languages in particular are tested. The twenty-third "Going Romance"
conference was a very special one: for the first time it was not hosted by one of
the Dutch universities, but was co-organized by the Radboud University
Nijmegen and the Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis and held in France at the
Maison du Séminaire in Nice from 3-5 December 2009. The present volume
contains a broad range of peer-reviewed articles dealing with syntax, phonology,
morphology, semantics and acquisition of the Romance languages as well as
selected papers from the special workshop dealing with linguistic change in
relation to linguistic theory.
