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'
The function of the grammatical category of gender is one of the most controversial issues in linguistics. This study draws to inquire about the extent to which there is a diachronically established relationship motivated by core grammatical structure between gender and suffixation that can be described in terms of nominal quantification . According to this view, word formation by means of suffixes in New High German serves less for transposition and modification, and more for the creation of overtly marked, quantifiable nouns.
