There are prepositions that are intensifying but I don't think that is the case here. An intensifying preposition intensifies the meaning of the verb.
Making fall into crash or eat into devour.
I think the reason the behaviour of PROS corresponds to the general meanings of the cases is; PROS usually indicate motion. The "general meaning of the cases" also has to do with motion.

hey will, thanks for that, i haven't read horrocks' book.

i would appreciate it if you could you let me know whether horrocks gives definitions of the other prepositions as well, and if so, are there any which are particularly worth noting (i.e. which differ from the common account / the meanings given in adams' book linked above)?

cheers :)

He discusses every one that can act as a preverb.

Since I only know about Adams' since your post this morning, and I approach Horrocks' only when feeling very brave, I'm afraid I cannot give a comparison just now. :)
