This book, now in its revised second edition, was written primarily for ESL students. However, it s also useful in remedial English courses presented on high school and college freshman levels. Many students of English as a second language quickly discover that English is unlike their native tongue in the many ways it uses prepositions. The majority of other languages have relatively few prepositions, each of which serving many different communication purposes. English is different in that it has dozens of prepositions, and very few of them follow any clear, consistent set of grammar rules. This book offers practical guidelines for correct preposition usage, and provides hundreds of examples that incorporate English prepositions in familiar contexts

From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
Students for whom English is their second language quickly discover that unlike their native tongue, English possesses many prepositions that are used in many different ways. Most other languages have relatively few prepositions, each of them serving many different purposes in communicating intended ideas. English is different--and this book demonstrates exactly how different it is by examining more than 60 commonly used English prepositions. You will find practical, easy-to-understand guidelines for correct preposition usage, supplemented with hundreds of example sentences that demonstrate various ways in which they are used.
