Abstract

Through English writing and questionnaires, this research is intended to study the prepositions avoidance phenomenon in English writing of different-level English learners and explore its reasons. We find that college English learners at low-to-medium level obviously incline to avoid prepositions while those at medium-to-high level have no tendency to avoid prepositions. Thus, we can conclude that the low-level English is the major reason of avoiding prepositions while interlingual differences, complexity of target language, psychological and emotional factors can also be its reasons.
