#GrammarTrivia: Verb + Preposition (For or From)

In this post, I’d like to talk about grammar. In particular, I’ll talk about ‘Verb + Preposition (For or From)’. Here we go!

Verb + For

Pairing examples:

  • Apply for,
  • Ask for,
  • Care for,
  • Prepare for.

Study the following examples:

  • “I applied for the job but unfortunately I didn’t get it.”
  • “How do you ask for a cup of hot coffee here?”
  • “Jane spent many years caring for her aged parents.”
  • “I can’t go out tonight because I have to prepare for my exam.”

Verb + From

Pairing examples:

  • Protect from,
  • Recover from,
  • Suffer from.

Study the following examples:

  • “This lotion should protect you from mosquitoes.”
  • “Have you recovered from your illness yet?”
  • “I suffer from fever.”
