Genitive Prepositions Used with the Dative in Spoken German.
Petig, William E.
Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, v30 n1 p36-39 Spr 1997
Presents results of a study of the use of the dative with the genitive prepositions "(an)statt,""trotz,""wahrend" and "wegen" based on two corpora. Notes that a comparison of these two computerized corpora shows that no clear trend exists regarding the increased use of the dative with these prepositions in spoken German and that the use of the dative is regionally determined.
