What is a preposition?

A preposition links a following noun, pronoun or noun phrase to some other word in the sentence. Prepositions often describe locations or directions, but can describe other things, such as relations of time. Words like ‘before’ or ‘since’ can act either as prepositions or as conjunctions.

Preposition examples

on, off, to, away, near, above, below, over, past, through, under, up, down, along

National Curriculum English programme of study links
