Vocabareas - information and contents
This exercise practises using words and phrases which are composed of a preposition and a noun or verb. The preposition can be placed
before or after the noun resulting in two compounds which are often confused. Look at the words in the list and decide which of the
words/phrases should go in the gaps. The pairs may be noun-noun, verb-verb or noun-verb. Make sure you put them into the correct form in
each sentence if necessary.
