Preposition “by” and noun combinations

Hi everyone, welcome to episode 68 of the Art of Business English podcast. This week I am continuing my series on prepositions and noun combinations. Today, I have a quick episode on the preposition “by” with nouns.

If you missed last week’s episode then I encourage you to go back and take a look at it. In episode 67 I explain in detail how preposition and noun combinations are formed.

this week however, I am just going to jump straight in and provide you with a list of 20 preposition “by” and noun combinations.

As usual, I have divided the episode into the following parts.

  1. A list of 20 common noun combinations with the preposition “by”
  2. The translation for these combinations
  3. Some sample sentences in use

Once again, it’s great having you with me and I hope you love this episode.

Let’s get started then.


Preposition “by” + noun combination

Right, if you are listening to this podcast in the car or on your phone then remember you can take a look at the video over at the AOBE website.

I am going to start with the preposition and noun combination, and then give you the translation.

Final thoughts

Well, that brings us to the end of another episode here today. I hope you are finding this mini-series on preposition and noun combinations very useful. If you need some motivation to study, then I recommend you make an effort to learn 20 of these expressions per week. Then you will be ready for the next week. Learning and internalising them is pretty straight forward, all you need to do is write out 5 at a time, and then create some example sentences. Secondly, you can take a list with you to work and pop them into some emails or presentations that you are preparing.

So, that is it for me today. It’s been a pleasure having you here, don’t forget to head over to the AOBE website and sign up to get your copy of the transcript and your free weekly coaching sessions. Perfect for busy professionals who want access to a professional team of business English trainer.

Until next week, take care, by for now.
