    Good question.

    Which words do you think would work? Why do you ask?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: preposition use

    I have deleted the last two responses.

    Rodgers White, please don't just give out the answers to people. In post #2, the OP was asked to tell us which words he/she would use. We are still waiting for a response to that post.

    Yamato2201, this was just a case of bad timing. Just as you were writing your response, I was deleting the post that just handed out the (potential) answers. I deleted yours because it quoted a post which is no longer visible.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
