Lexical? Grammatical?

Well, we’re into Week 2 of the Trinity Cert TESOL course here in Cádiz and trainees handed in their Unknown Language Journals yesterday.  This course were treated  to four hours of Korean (previous courses have been faced with Welsh, Arabic, Irish or Greek) and spent the weekend typing up their assignments, thinking about lesson aims, teaching methods and the learning experience.

Now comes the task of marking the assignments and the tutors always end up asking each other (or the UL tutor!) whether trainees have correctly identified the lesson aims.  Which, more often than not, leads us to wondering whether prepositions are lexical or grammatical!  This course as well though threw prefixes into the mix and so I did a bit of research and found this fabulous article on that very topic.
