We have already briefly discussed prepositions in the
prepositions. In this chapter we have said that
preposition establish the relation between objects and
/ or between subject and object. But we only presented
very few prepositions. In German there are about 150
prepositions, some of which are used very rarely (these
are marked for you). We also give you the preposition
that is used instead of others.
The use of preposition is quite difficult, especially
since they are often used in a different way than their
English equivalent. Our advice for you is to learn them
and their translation good enough to recognise them
passively. The most often used you'll learn through
(not only) our exercises.
In the following you'll find a variety of prepositions
in alphabetic order (not in order of their importance!),
the declination that is to be used with it and many,
many examples and exercises.
