    prepositions after adjectives

    So oFten adjectives are followed by prepositions which cause confusion , something could not be predicted by logics, on have to know them by heart. for example : easy to/for , angry at /with , hard on sb, ok by/with sb, kind of you ....... And it it not an easy task to search all the dictionary .Could you please make a list of those combinations , or direct as to another site.

    Re: prepositions after adjectives

    There are thousands and thousands of adjectives and many can take more than one preposition, so a complete list simply does not exist. I am afraid that dictionaries are the place to find the answers.
