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'
Bohuslav Havránek (1893–1978) belonged to the core of the Prague School and after the death of Vilém Mathesius he was even the president of the Prague Linguistic Circle. In spite of this he is almost unknown in the world. With the present volume, the authors wish – in the year of the 120th anniversary of Havránek’s birth – to remind the world linguistics of his existence.
