Summary: A Guidebook for ESL Students

Send this Page to a Friend

Overview Standard 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.
