English uses many more prepositions than most languages - a situation
that can be confusing to many students who approach English as their
second language. In this book, in easy-to-understand form, are guidelines
to help students find their way among 61 different prepositions -
and understand how to use them all correctly. Hundreds of examples
place prepositions in familiar contexts. Propositions pose more problems
for the non-native speaker or learner of English than any other part
of speech. Why? Prepositions are just little words that never change
in form; they are pronounced softly in unstressed syllables; they
aren't even given capital letters in book titles; native speakers
choose the correct ones without thinking. So, how can they be confusing?
Here's why they can be difficult: Prepositions are difficult to define
without using other prepositions! No other language has the exact
equivalent to English prepositions. Many preposition words can also
be used as adverbs or conjunctions. Many prepositions can indicate
more than one meaning or relationship. Two or more propositions can
have the same meaning. A preposition in combination with another word
may have multiple meanings. This book is designed to take the mystery
out of prepositions for those whose first language is not English.
It is a comprehensive handbook and guide that explains in detail the
61 most commonly used English propositions and their usage. It is
easy to read and understand, and easy to use for quick reference or
for more serious study.
