As I replied to Andrew (when I wanted to reply to the list but the "reply= -to:" wasn't there) the construccion in Spanish would be: - (=C9l) me culp=F3 por jugar all=E1. (all=E1 =3D all=ED), the preposition is surely "por". Anyhow in Spanish = (and I guess in most romance languages) the infinitive could be used with any preposit= ion (much as the -ing form is used in English) Is the finite verb: "culpar p= or", "culpar de", the one which tells the preposition. -- Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinz=F3n
