Italian Grammar: Verbs and Their Prepositions

Italian Grammar: Verbs and Their Prepositions


It’s Professor Dave, let’s pick prepositions. One of the hardest things to learn in any
language is the mastery of prepositions. This is because prepositions are highly idiomatic
and their specific usage isn’t always consistent from one language to another. Let’s go over some lists of verbs right
now, along with the prepositions that they require when in the infinitive. First, let’s list the verbs that do not
require any preposition. Let’s look at some examples, noting that
the highlighted verb is not followed by a preposition. Next let’s go over the verbs which require
the preposition “a”. Again, some examples to see this in action. Lastly, many verbs require the preposition
“di”. That was quite the list, so let’s see some
examples. It may seem impossible to memorize these lists,
but don’t worry, you really won’t have to, as you won’t be using all of these verbs
frequently. You will memorize the important ones over
time through the repetition of seeing a particular preposition associated with it over and over again, so to get a little more practice, let’s check comprehension.

    "bisognare" non esiste. Does not exist. TO NEED –> "avere bisogno di" or "servire". Mi serve la fica. Ho bisogno della fica.
