Subjecting Myself To Prepositions

Dublex had some instrumental prepositions:
bo by (with the help of)
ro for (as a means of)
zo with (by means of).
As in: "The pizza can be cut BY Dad WITH a knife FOR an equal distribution."

Novvocu will just use particles for that instead. I started work on a system of 16 associative prepositions, but it will take some time to flesh out:
subiecto, "about (concerning)"
consubiecto, "not about (not concerning)"
From this new word:
subiect [From Latin 'subiectus', extant in English, Acadon, et al.] discipline, subject, subject area, subject field, field, field of study, study, branch of knowledge -- (a branch of knowledge; "in what discipline is his doctorate?"; "teachers should be well trained in their subject"; "anthropology is the study of human beings");; subject, topic, theme -- (the subject matter of a conversation or discussion; "he didn't want to discuss that subject"; "it was a very sensitive topic"; "his letters were always on the theme of love");; topic, subject, issue, matter -- (some situation or event that is thought about; "he kept drifting off the topic"; "he had been thinking about the subject for several years"; "it is a matter for the police")
Contrast with Dublex subect.
