Mistakes are often made by using the wrong preposition after certain words. Here are a few examples:
We say to accuse of, not for.
Don’t say: They accused the woman for cheating.
Say: They accused the woman of cheating.
We say to travel by train, plane, bus, etc. not with the train, etc.
Don’t say: She travelled with the plane yesterday.
Say: She travelled by plane yesterday.
Observation: travelled is spelled “traveled” in American English.
We say complain about, not for.
Don’t say: He complained for the noise.
Say: He complained about the noise.
We say congratulate on, not for.
Don’t say: We congratulated him for his success.
Say: We congratulated him on his success.
We say married to, not with.
Don’t say: He was married with a beautiful woman.
Say: He was married to a beautiful woman.
