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.

Title: Natural Language and Linguistic Theory
Publisher: Springer
 
LL Supporting Publishers
URL: http://www.springer.com/11049
Description: Natural Language & Linguistic Theory provides a forum for the discussion of theoretical research that pays close attention to natural language data, so as to provide a channel of communication between researchers of a variety of points of view. The journal actively seeks to bridge the gap between descriptive work and work of a highly theoretical, less empirically oriented nature. In attempting to strike this balance, a primary goal of the journal is to encourage work which makes complex language data accessible to those unfamiliar with the language area being studied, and work which makes complex theoretical positions more accessible to those working outside the theoretical framework under review. The journal is structured to include: generative studies on the syntax, semantics, phonology and the lexicon of natural language; interdisciplinary contributions written with theoretical linguists in mind; surveys of recent theoretical developments which facilitate accessibility for a graduate student readership; reactions/replies to recent papers; book reviews of important linguistics titles; special topic issues.
