This page intentionally left blank Preposition Placement in English 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, com- paratives and passives. Drawing on over 100 authentic examples from both first-language (British) 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. Although written within the usage-based Construction Grammar framework, the results are presented in theory-neutral terminology, making them access- ible to researchers from all syntactic schools. This pioneering volume will be of interest not only to syntacticians, but also to second-language researchers and those working on variation in English. t h o m a s h o f f m a n n is Assistant Professor of English Linguistics at the University of Osnabrück, Germany. His main research interests are Construction Grammar and the syntactic and phonetic variation in World Englishes. He has co-edited the volume World Englishes: Problems, Properties and Prospects (2009; with Lucia Siebers) and together with Graeme Trousdale is currently co-editing the Oxford Handbook of Construction Grammar. s t u di e s i n e ng l i s h l a ng uag e General editor Merja Kytö (Uppsala University) Editorial Board Bas Aarts (University College London), John Algeo (University of Georgia), Susan Fitzmaurice (University of Sheffield), Christian Mair (University of Freiburg), Charles F. Meyer (University of Massachusetts) The aim of this series is to provide a framework for original studies of English, both present-day and past. All books are based securely on empirical research, and represent theoretical and descriptive contributions to our knowledge of national and international varieties of English, both written and spoken. The series covers a broad range of topics and approaches, including syntax, phon- ology, grammar, vocabulary, discourse, pragmatics and sociolinguistics, and is aimed at an international readership.
