    Default preposition + noun

    Hello,

    Please, do you know about any online dictionary where I could enter a noun and get possible prepositions for the noun with an explanation when to use which?

    E.g.
    school --> at school ...., in school ....
    street --> in the street ...., on the street, ....

    Thank you,
    F.

    Default Re: preposition + noun

    I know those web sites quite well, but they do not easily get me what I need.

    E.g. If I am not sure whether to say I was in or at the cinema, I would need to take a look somewhere at the noun cinema and see possible prepositions + explanation.

    Thanks.
