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'
World Englishes is a core introductory textbook covering the area of World Englishes (sometimes known as new or international englishes): the study of the varieties of English which have developed around the world, in the wake of British colonialism. With a strong emphasis on real language texts and activities and including a mini-reader of key articles/extracts, this is an interactive textbook which provides a firm grounding in the subject and gives students the resources for further study.
