    Re: For vs Of

    In your first, I would use "for".
    In your second, I would "chemistry professor".

    I don't think there is any formula that works for prepositions.

    I agree- I would use Professor of Chemistry for the position title like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulleri...r_of_Chemistry.

    What should I use in the following sentence:

    Today I am here to ask you 2000 dollars in return of/for 20% of my business.

    Thanks.
