that nobody can create a list of prepositions and say: “Here are all the
prepositions in the English language – no more and no fewer.” Why? Because
complex prepositions can theoretically be added to the language at any time.
This ebook lists all 94 one-word prepositions (which are unlikely to change or be
added to) and 56 complex prepositions (which may possibly be added to as the
