Adjectives: prepositional adjectives


Susan is afraid of dogs.

Prepositional adjectives (e.g. 'bad at') are combinations of an adjective (bad) and a preposition (at). Unfortunately, there is no rule that can be generally applied, which means each adjective proposition combination needs to be learned individually . Some adjectives can even be combined with different prepositions (e.g. 'angry with' or 'angry about'.
