Anybody can help to find out which preposition words should be used after:


1) Approach (Verb) / Approach (Noun)

Yes, it is probably more of a research job that most people do on their onw. I don't think Approach has any prepositions after it. It is a transitive verb, so it is followed by the object - e.g. approach somebody

As to the noun version, you can probably say "on approach" :) or the approach of a train or approach to accuracy
(which i pretty much got from a dictionary)

I have no idea about the second one.

There is no such English word as "uphelp." There is a verb "uphold" that has the past tense tenses "upheld."

Approach is usually followed by for.
Uphold is not usually followed by anything specific.

Hope this helps.
