Prepositions are relation words; they can indicate location, time, or other more abstract relationships. A preposition combines with another word (usually a noun or pronoun) called the complement.

A preposition shows the relationship that exists between a noun or pronoun and some other word in the sentence. The preposition and the noun or pronoun become the prepositional phrase.

A preposition is a word or group of words used before a noun, pronoun, or noun phrase to show direction, time, place, location, spatial relationships, or to introduce an object. Some examples of prepositions are words like "in," "at," "on," "of," and "to."

The types of prepositions in English grammar include prepositions of time, place, movement, manner, agent, measure, source and possession

Prepositions are always used to show how a noun or phrase is related to something else. When utilising a preposition, it must always be preceded by the subject and verb, and followed by a noun. It should never be followed by a verb! Let's have a look at a few examples.
