Understanding Prepositions provides a key to the mystery of one of the most difficult aspects of the English language, offering advice on how to recognize, understand and use prepositions correctly. The text is arranged in two sections. In the study section, the prepositions are presented thematically within broad sense groups such as position and movement, time, means, reason and purpose. The role of prepositions in phrasal verbs is explained and analyzed; guidance is given on which prepositions to use with particular adjectives, nouns and verbs. DO IT YOURSELF exercises are included at the end of each chapter; no other workbook or teacher's guide is provided. Please note that British spelling and terms are used. 183 pages, softcover.
