Introduction to prepositions:
Prepositions are generally words and phrases which often get started prepositional key phrases. Any prepositional key phrase can be a small grouping of words and phrases that contains a preposition, a noun or pronoun subject from the preposition, and also any modifiers from the subject.
When we give information, you should mak sure every idea is clear, and almost each and everything in the sentence has clear function. Like, look at this sentence:
I live Peshawar
The connection between “I” and “live” is very clear – “I” is the subject, and “live” is the verb. However, the relationship between “live” and “Peshawar” is not clear. Do you live in Peshawar, near Peshawar, North of Peshawar, South of Peshawar … the list goes on. In some cases, the noun immediately after the verb can be the direct object. To clear this confusion, prepositions are widely-used to get in touch ideas.
Prepositions are “connecting” words – as such, they must always connect two ideas. They connect the noun immediately following them to another idea. The noun immediately following the preposition is called the object of the preposition. A preposition and the object of the preposition are together called a preposition phrase.
Here are 30 most common prepositions:
as, at, against, around, among, across, after, about, by, between, before, behind, during, for, from, into, in, including, like, of, on, off, over, to, towards, through , under, upon, with, without, within
The most common preposition is “of” – it is most frequently used to describe what kind/type/brand you are saying:
Three kilograms(what kind) of beef.
Both (what?) of the dogs are friendly.
