Student or Learner
I've got a question
can yo answer me please
when I tanslate a word like intrusion, there are more than preposition like on, upon and into with it
and my question is which one do I use?
are they all the same or different
thank you teacher for your respond, but what about on? and how do I define the correct preposition if a dictionary give me more than one. Also, let's take disappointed as an example
at/about (sth) and in/with (sb)
With your example, I don't think I would ever use "disappointed at", and "disappointed about" is frequently interchangeable with "disappointed with".
I'm disappointed about my exam results.
I'm disappointed with my exam results.
I'm disappointed with your behaviour. (A specific behaviour has caused you to be disappointed.)
I'm disappointed in you. (You expected more/a better result from this person, but they have let you down.)
