Prepositions with Verbs

English Glossary Index



Prepositions with Verbs :


Prepositions are sometimes so firmly wedded to other words that they have practically become one word. In fact, in other languages, such as German, they would have become one word. This occurs in three categories : nouns, adjectives, and verbs.


For Example :

apologize for

ask about

ask for

belong to

bring up

care for

find out

give up

grow up

look for

look forward to

look up

make up

pay for

prepare for
