What is a Preposition?
  • A preposition is a word that works in a phrase or
    group of words. It does not ever work alone.
  • This group of words is called a prepositional
    phrase.
  • A prepositional phrase adds description and
    detail to a sentence. It is not a necessary part
    of a sentence.

What are Prepositions?
  • The word but is sometimes a preposition.
    Usually it is a conjunction, but it turns into a
    preposition when it means except.
  • Ex. Everyone but me went to the game.
  • (This means that everyone except me
    was able to go therefore, but is a
    preposition.)

9
How Do I Make a Prepositional Phrase?
  • To create a prepositional phrase, you must begin
    with a preposition. It will always be the first
    word in the phrase.
  • Ex. by, in, from
  • To end a prepositional phrase, you must put in a
    noun or pronoun that completes the phrase.
  • Ex. me, the game, Susan
  • That means the prepositional phrases are
  • by me, in the game, and from Susan

10
Where are Prepositional Phrases Found?
  • Prepositional phrases may be located anywhere in
    a sentence.
  • Ex. On Monday I went shopping.
  • Ex. I went shopping on Monday.
  • Ex. The man in the blue suit is a spy!

Preposition or Adverb?

    a prepositional phrase.
  • When one of the prepositional phrase words is
    used alone, it is no longer a preposition it is
    an adverb.
  • Ex. He fell down the stairs. (This is a
    preposition because it is part of the phrase
    down the stairs.)
  • Ex. He fell down. (This is an adverb because it
    is not part of a phrase. It is working alone.)
