Definition:

        A preposition is a word or set of words that shows the relationship between a word in the sentence and the word that is the object of the preposition.

        Prepositions can never be alone, so it makes sense to learn about prepositions in their phrases.

        Remember that A preposition isn’t a preposition unless it goes with a related noun or pronoun.

Examples

  • In the vase. in (preposition) the vase (object)
  • With the polka-dots. with (preposition) the polka-dots (object)
  • Before the desk. before (preposition) the desk (object).
  • To the movie. to (preposition) the movies (object)
  • After science class. after (preposition) science class (object)
  • On your tiptoes. on (preposition) your tiptoes (object)

The professor can sit on the desk and I sit after him. The professor can sit on (preposition) the desk (preposition) and I sit after (preposition) him (object)

The words of the vase, the polka-dots, the desk, the movies, science class and tiptoes are nouns,

The word “him” is pronoun.
