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'
Open Linguistics invites manuscripts for the Topical Issue ''Towards Branch- Crossing Isoglosses in Indo-European''. By branch-crossing isoglosses we mean those convergent isoglosses (phonetic, lexical or grammatical) that are shared by some historically attested Indo-European languages regardless their immediate genetic affiliation. Such isoglosses have been observed since the proposal of the Wave Model by Johannes Schmidt. However, a systematic and comprehensive approach to this phenomenon is still a desideratum.
The ultimate goal is to reconsider our knowledge of the history of the Indo- European languages from the point of view of Contact Linguistics. Papers on methodology and theoretical aspects of this problem, as well as individual case studies are welcome.
