Prepositional phrases

A prepositional phrase begins with a preposition and ends with a noun.

Prepositional phrases indicate time, relationships, locations, connections, distance, directions, orientations, differences, etc.

Here are some examples:

Jerry works at a bank. (location)
In the afternoon on Sunday, we’re all going to meet at the park. (time / day / location)

There are so many different reasons for choosing a preposition to use with a verb, a noun, or an adjective. The best way to learn how to make the right choice is through reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Eventually, you will learn how to make the right choice.
