Description - Prepositions and Particles in English by Elizabeth M. O'Dowd
This text offers a discourse-functional account of the categories "preposition" and "particle" in English. It explains why certain words have membership in both categories and solves puzzles long associated with the syntax and semantics of these words. Based on linguistic data from a series of actual conversations, the book provides insights into how prepositions and particles are used and how their meanings can change across different discourse contexts or over time. This book is intended for linguists.
