    limp with or without preposition

    Do people limp their righ/lef leg or does the verb 'to limp' take a preposition?

    What does "righ/lef" mean?

    You need a preposition after "limp".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: limp with or without preposition

    If I was going to say that a person limps (????) their left leg, what would it take?

    I would use "on" but you will also see "with".
