1884 Excerpt: ...shall Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror, But
when it first did help to wound itself. Supply prepositions:
--Italy is ( ) the south of Europe. Thomas k Becket was
assassinated ( ) Canterbury ( ) the year 1170. The murderers rushed
( ) the cathedral. Richard I. started ( ) the Crusades ( ) the
beginning of his reign. He was made prisoner ( ) Germany. His
majesty paid a visit ( ) Dublin. COMPOSITION. At. In. Into. For.

generally better, however, in such cases, to repeat the subject of

following are the correlative conjunctions: --Neither takes nor
after it; as, It is neither you nor I., It was either you or some

to be understood., She was so overcome that she fainted. (2)
Observation.--These conjunctions, however, do not always go
together in couples. (3) Sometimes those which usually begin the
sentence are found at the end; as, "I will not go either." "He does
not like it though." EXERCISE.. Point out the conjunctions: --We
take no note of time but from its loss...
