This page is meant to show the importance of working with Ogden's Basic English, and the value of a close reading of Richards's First Steps in Reading English. Prepositions (or Directives in Ogden's words for the Basic English system) are short words but complex and crucial.
C.K. Ogden, I.A. Richards, and William Empson put in a lot of time for thought about the English Language and Meaning Making in general. Their educational materials are worth paying attention to.
