In this article, we explore the basics of prepositions and the various types of prepositions with examples.
Prepositions are the words that link nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition.
Example: The book is on the table.
A prepositional phrase is made up of the preposition, its object and any associated adjectives or adverbs. A prepositional phrase can function as a noun, an adjective, or an adverb.
Example: At home, in time.
NOTE: A preposition is always followed by a "noun". It is never followed by a verb.
