Prepositions with Verbs

Which preposition do you need after a verb?

In English, many verbs are followed by one specific preposition. It is important to learn those verb+preposition collocations.

Most commonly used with prepositions with verbs:
-for
-to
-about
-with
-of
-in
-at
-on
-from

“He listens to rock music.” (Correct — the prepositional verb is not separated, and the object comes directly after the preposition.)
“He listens rock music .” (Incorrect — the verb listens requires a preposition to connect to its object, rock music.)
