Is there any general rule dictating the omission of prepositions?

I often come across sentences where prepositions are omitted and where I would normally have used them.

Just to clarify, here is an example:

I will throw you out of the window.

This is rendered as:

I will throw you out the window.

I did read about Zero marking and telegraphic style but the information provided was meager at best.

Could anyone please enlighten me about this concept and how it works?

    There is no general rule. It's just an example of casual speech. Mar 17 at 13:29
