Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-based Approach (repost)

Thomas Hoffmann, "Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-based Approach"
2011 | ISBN: 052176047X | 320 pages | PDF | 2,1 MB

Preposition placement, the competition between preposition stranding (What is he talking about?) and pied-piping (About what is he talking?), is one of the most interesting areas of syntactic variation in English. This is the first book to investigate preposition placement across all types of clauses that license it, such as questions, exclamations and wh-clauses, and those which exhibit categorical stranding, such as non-wh relative clauses, comparatives, and passives. Drawing on over 100 authentic examples from both first-language (English) and second-language (Kenyan) data, it combines experimental and corpus-based approaches to provide a full grammatical account of preposition placement in both varieties of English.
