Preposition Placement in English

by Thomas Hoffmann

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. Although written within the usage-based construction grammar framework, the results are presented in theory-neutral terminology, making them accessible to researchers from all syntactic schools. This pioneering volume will be of interest not only to syntacticians, but also second language researchers and those working on variation in English.

Preschool Gems: Love, Death, Magic, and Other Surprising Treasures from the Mouths of Babes

by Leslie Mccollom

When preschool teacher Leslie McCollom created the Preschool Gems Twitter feed, it was because precious jewels were slipping through her fingers every day. Jewels like, "My mom lived in the 90's," "I'm feeling poisonous, baby kitty," and "OK, but I'm still a dragon. " Although she swore she'd remember these gems forever, in five minutes they would vanish, never to be heard by human ears again. So she became a covert anthropologist in the underground world of children, and started carefully cataloging them, and has been gracing the Twitterverse with her findings ever since--such as: "When I went to the chainsaw store I saw someone with REAL bubble gum. " "There's a wolf in my tummy and a porcupine in my bum. " "I don't care about time outs. I only care about my life. " "Who are me?" "I love David Bowie. I'm going to marry David Bowie. " Preschool Gems is a collection of the most bizarre, hilarious, jaw-dropping things overheard at Leslie's school. By turns sweet, sinister, and naively sincere, these treasures prove that kids are really just miniature people who are weirder and a lot less inhibited than their adult counterparts. .
