Unnecessary Prepositions





English Glossary Index



Unnecessary Prepositions :


In everyday speech, we fall into some bad habits, using prepositions where they are not necessary.


It would be a good idea to eliminate these words altogether, but we must be especially careful not to use them in formal, academic prose.

  • The book fell off of the desk.
