Summary

Using Prepositions

  • It is very difficult to memorise where and when to use individual prepositions. A better strategy is to try to learn which prepositions are used with certain combinations of verbs, nouns and adjectives.
  • In your academic writing, you have an opportunity to focus on the verbs and prepositions that your discipline uses and to become proficient in their use. These patterns will be consistent throughout the specialised literature of your discipline and so, it is best to learn these patterns.
