: : : : : : Which preposition would you use when saying:
: : : : : : He writes __the blackboard (or __the wall) all the day.

: : : : : I would use "on", but since I'm basically a frenchie, wait for additional advice...

: : : : I'd use on too!

: : : I agree with "on", is it possible to use over or after?

: : You could write all over the blackboard ie the writing would cover it all. I don't think you could use after.

: A: What part of the wall did he write on?
: B: The part over the blackboard.

You could write 'to' the blackboard, but you won't get any answer :-)
