Adjectives + Prepositions

Dobrodošli na stranicu Adjectives + Prepositions

Hajde da objasnimo o čemu se ovde radi.

Određeni pridevi u engleskom jeziku odmah iza sebe traže predlog, na primer: famous for, interested in, worried about. Ne postoji pravilo koje određuje koji predlog ide uz konkretan pridev, pa je najbolje učiti kombinacije pridev + predlog napamet.

Olakšavajuća okolnost je da postoje neke šeme i modeli pomoću kojih se te kombinacije lakše pamte. Važno je samo da zapamtimo sledeće: nakon pridev + predlog uvek stoji imenica ili gerund (glagol+-ing).

AT

At koristimo sa pridevima kao što su  good/bad/amazing/brilliant/terrible, etc. da izrazimo veštine i sposobnosti.

He's really good at English.
She's amazing at the piano.
They're terrible at organising anything.
I'm not very good at drawing.

ABOUT

Često nalazimo about iza prideva koji opisuju osećanja, poput angry/excited/happy/nervous/sad/stressed/worried, etc. kako bi objasnili šta je ta osećanja izazvalo.

I'm angry about the decision.
He's nervous about the presentation.
She's excited about the new job.
They were worried about the exam.

OF

Međutim, posle prideva koji opisuju osećanja koristimo i of .

She was afraid of telling her mum.
I'm frightened of having an accident.
He's scared of flying.
You should be proud of your progress.

TO

Možemo koristiti to da objasnimo vezu između ljudi i stvari.

He's married to the director.
I'm addicted to my phone.
I'm allergic to nuts.
It's similar to the old one.

To koristimo i da opišemo ponašanje prema nekoj osobi.

Was he nice to you?
He is always polite to everyone.
She was very rude to the waitress.

Evo još nekih čestih kombinacija prideva i predloga:
