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'

Title: Cashibo Folklore and Culture: Prose, Poetry, and Historical Background
Written By: Lila Wistrand-Robinson
URL: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9781556710483
Series Title: Publications in Ethnography #34
Description:

Lila Wistrand-Robinson, who is an Adjunct Professor of Social Studies at Black River Technical College in Pocohontas, Arkansas, has taken the data from her doctoral thesis on Cashibo, a Panoan language, and revised it for general readership. The research for this work was done over a six-year period during which Dr. Wistrand-Robinson made several trips to the eastern slopes of the Cordillera Azul 'Blue Ridge' area of the Andes in Peru. The book is divided into two parts. The first part contains many of the myths, legends, and chants passed from father to son among the Cashibo. For those readers who are particularly interested in how the stories relate to other Panoan languages, each tale has been linked with Thompson's list of anthropological themes. Part two of the book describes the history of the Cashibo people and culture up to the mid 1960s. The references section includes not only those cited by the author in the volume, but also anthropological and linguistic works that discuss Panoan culture in general, and the Cashibo in particular. This section alone is a valuable resource for those interested in studying the languages and cultures of the indigenous groups living in the Peruvian rain forest.
