English Prepositions

by Krishanthan

I have problems with English prepositions. For instance, using 'as’. I need to improve my preposition use. So, please give me a solution for my problem (books, website...etc)

Hi Krishanthan,

It took me longer than usual to answer your question because I have written an article about it.

Many people have problems with the prepositions so I thought an entire article was in order. You can visit it here...How to learn English prepositions and what books can help you

I have recommended two great books that I think could help you. I think that the "English Grammar in Use" would be very helpful for studying at home.

How is everyone else learning English Prepositions? Does anyone have any other books that they recommend?

Would you like an answer without waiting?

You can answer all your grammar questions yourself and in the comfort of your own home?

How? It is simple. Get a copy of
Practical English Usage, by Michael Swan.

I can honestly say that this grammar reference guide is the best I have ever used and I use it daily answering all of your grammar questions; including this question.

Why wait for my answer? When the answer is just a page number away?

Get this book now and start solving your grammar questions!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Which is a Preposition?
by: roger

What are the prepositions, in this sentence: "Pennies were formerly made of copper".

Hi Rodger,
"of" is a preposition in that sentence.

Penny = noun
Are (were) = verb
Formally = adverb
Made = Verb
of = preposition
Copper = noun

I hope that helps! - Diana
