Prepositions

Mon Jul 18, 2005 1:36 am

I think maybe, just maybe, I have started a thread that Logan22L can appreciate. So, can we name all, or most, of the prepositions WITHOUT CHEATING? I'll kick it off:

about, above, across, after, against, along, among, around...

Well...

Or they were just stuck at the letter C... (even though you did find one!)

Anyway, out of my own recent experience: You should have named this thread:

Alright, Baylor: I'm not sure why you aimed this thread at me. But, I posted a thread about the subjunctive, and elsewise pumping gas for a living. Please expound.

It's not aimed at you. My comment is a compliment to you. Given your knack for proper english, I thought that you would understand why I posted this thread. Were I to challenge you, then yes, this thread would have been aimed at you. Oh well. I guess I'll just stop trying.  cry

No! By no means, don't. I may be a worthy adversary, but I'm not a dink.
