Details about English Prepositions Explained: Revised Edition
English Prepositions Explained: Revised Edition PDF free download – This new edition retains most of the structure of the first edition but virtually the entire text is new, partly to reflect the impressive amount of research done in the field since 1996 and partly to give more information about more prepositions. (Only one preposition has been dropped, the appealing but rare cattycorner ~ ‘diagonally opposite’.) All of the figures have been re-done, and there are many more than before. Overall, this edition relies on corpora (including frequency data) to a far greater extent than before. Virtually all of the examples (which are almost entirely new) have been drawn from the World Wide Web after searches informed by analysis of concordances. The latter have been generously furnished online by or under the auspices of the British National Corpus (www.natcorp.ox.ac.uk/), the Corpus of Contemporary American English (www.americancorpus.org/), and the Collins ‘WordbanksOnline’ English corpus sampler.
