[B-Greek] Semantic Range of Prepositions

One of the great challenges in koine is the semantic range of prepositions.
To what degree are prepositions just simple prepositions in koine and to
what degree are they extensions of noun case usage that require a semantic
analysis of the nouns they are associated with? And how can one tell the
difference? There always seems to be a balancing act going on between
reading of prepositions spatially, as true to their own meaning, and reading
prepositions interpretively as true to their context. Any words of advice on
this challenge from our more learned scholars?
