Yes, exactly, that's why I have so much trouble with these. I'll work on motley's list for the time being. Thanks to all!
Funny enough, I was recently reading a technical article about this prepositional connections.
The preposition relationship lists I have is probably way too exhaustive (and hence, potentially confusing), and I wasn't sure whether you were interested in that much detail, or something else. That's why I asked.
The verbs dictionary I'm writing explains in details all these prepositional uses, but the bottom line is: you have to memorize most of them (like in English). Of course, there are other prepositional uses that are intuitive as well, but these are treated differently in my dictionary.
Anyway, if you have any specific question about any of them, don't hesitate to ask. Everyone here will do their best to try to answer your question.
