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 demarcation between adjectives and adverbs has been a matter of ongoing controversy in German linguistics. This book starts by presenting traditional options for categorizing words such as schnell [quick/ly] and sofort [immediate/ly]. Building on this history, it proposes a model of parts of speech that integrates lexicography and word formation research to include adjective-adverb connections in addition to strict categorization.
