I have often heard that you can use je when doubting which preposition to use. Is this always the case?

1 Answer 1


Je is not intended for occasions of doubt, but rather when a preposition is needed but none of the defined prepositions are suitable. In practice, je is used infrequently, and most often in set phrases.

  • Time espressions (je la tria horo)
  • je via sano
  • je la barbo de Zamenhof!
  • plena je io (although plena de io is more common.)
  • graveda je knabo
  • mi kredas je Dio
