What Are Prepositions?

Just like what was said in the beginning of this article, we know that there are a lot of types of speech. Nouns, verbs, pronouns, prepositions, adverbs and adjectives just to name a few. We also know what the other types of speech are and their function. The next thing we need to know is what is a preposition? What is the function of a preposition? What does a preposition do to your sentences? What are the types of prepositions? What happens to the sentence if there is no preposition? How many types of prepositions are there? Questions that can be given answers and answers it shall be. Continue with your reading below.

To keep the ball rolling, we first define what a preposition is. According to Cambridge and Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, a preposition is a type of speech. It is also a word or a phrase, a group of words or a group of phrases often seen before a noun, a pronoun or a noun phrase. In addition to that, a preposition also shows the time, the place, the direction or to introduce the object in the sentence. Some examples for prepositions would be: “She is in the classroom.” “Welcome to Sunnydale!” “She is at home.” In the following sentences the prepositions present are “in”, “to”, and “at”.

What is the function of a preposition? Have you ever thought about how a preposition functions in a sentence? Like what does it do? Why is it so important to know where the preposition is and how it affects the sentence? So what is the function of a preposition? The function of a preposition in a sentence is to use a noun, a pronoun or a phrase to alter a different word. Basically the preposition simply changes the word to make it sound better. Example of this would be: “She and her friend are looking.” This sentence sounds lacking, it lacks what she and her friend may be looking at and the preposition at. To alter the sentence it would turn out like this: “She and her friend are looking at books in a bookstore while drinking some water.” This is an example of a compound and a complete sentence as prepositions were added to it.

What are the types of prepositions? As we know, just like the rest of the types of speech, a preposition has its own types. Here are some of the most common types of prepositions, depending on their use as well. The preposition of time, the preposition of place, the preposition of movement, and the preposition of manner. These four types are often the most common types being discussed. The most common prepositions are “at, in and on.” When we talk about the preposition of time and using the three common prepositions, we simply add the next word to complete the sentence. An example would be “My birthday is on the 26th of October.” “Let’s begin at 12 o’clock sharp.” But if we are talking about the preposition of place, we simply add the name of the place whether it is a Proper noun or a Common noun. An example: “I am in the house.” “I am at the party.” “I am on the balcony.” For the preposition of movement, the following words are as follows: we have “to”, “towards”, “through”, “into”, “over” and “across”. These prepositions describe what the subject is doing. So the preposition of movement is always after the action. It is always found after what the subject is doing. Example: “I am going into the woods.” “I am going to the woods.” “I went through the woods.” “I went over the bridge in the woods.” and lastly, “I went across the woods to a nearby creek.” Lastly, the preposition of manner, these are the following: “with” “for” “of” “by” “like” “as” “in” and “ on”.

How to Use Prepositions?

As we all know, prepositions help make our sentences better. It also helps make our sentences make more sense.

1. Preposition of Manner

How to use the preposition of manner in a sentence. Sometimes referred to as the cause and effect preposition. The preposition of manner depicts how a certain thing or a certain situation may or should take place. Say in a situation that you may be writing a business letter, you may use any kind of preposition, but if you plan on stating the cause and effect of the situation, the preposition of manner is your best bet.

2. Writing Business Letters

What better way to use prepositions than in writing business letters. Of course, depending on how you may want to write it out, the different types of prepositions should also be used. If you plan on writing the information of going to a place, the preposition to use is the preposition of place. This means these are the following prepositions that should be present in your letter: the “at”, “in” and “on”. The preposition at should only be used when you are pointing at an object. The in when you are in closed spaces, and the on when you are writing about when the event or the situation took place.
