I'm an Italian who is learning English. Sometimes I do comparisons between the two languages, because it helps me understanding better the language.
I can't find this information anywhere so I hope someones here can help me.
In Italian we have 8 basic prepositions, which can be combined with articles to obtain new ones. In English, as far as I understand, we have many more prepositions. It seems to me that although the of such concepts are the same ("Prepositions" vs "Preposizioni") the actual concept is actually different. Is this insight correct? Could anyway please explain me in very few words what the differences are between the two of them?
