English Grammar Preposition Introduction

Introduction

Prepositions are short words that are normally placed either before or after a Noun to indicate the location or position of a Noun.

It shows the relation of a Noun/ProNoun to something else (Noun/Verb/AdVerb).

For example,

  • The bird is on the tree. (Relation between two Nouns)

 

In this example the Preposition, “on” is showing the relation between the two Nouns bird and tree.

  • In the picture given below we will say, “The dog is sitting on the table.” (Relation between a Verb and a Noun).

Here the word, “on” is a Preposition because it describes the position of the “dog” who is sitting on a “table”. It is showing the relation between the dog and the table and at the same time it is showing the relation between a Verb (sitting) and a Noun (table).

  • “The dog is sitting under the table.”

 

  • He is climbing up the staircase. (Relation between a Verb and a Noun).

  • The girls were dressed in red.
