    Post prepositions

    Hello there

    I was wondering what the proper preposition for supplier is: supplier of or supplier for?

    Or can both be used? If yes, where is the difference?

    And one last question: Is there a concise online site for prepositions or can someone recommend a good book?

    Thank you and many thanks,

    Kate

    Supply, not supplier.

    Ex: supply to (direction); Egypt halts gas supply to Israel
    Ex: supply for (benefits people); U.N. food supply for southern Philippines halted
