This question already has an answer here:
In British English, the standard is 'write to me'. In American English the standard is 'write me'. Similar variants exist with 'out of the window' and 'out the window'. When did the dropping of prepositions start happening? Are there any historical or regional influences? If so, do you know of any research that has been done on these? Finally, which version do other forms of English (eg Australian) use?
