The Preposition--An Introduction
Some students of ESL (English as a Second Language) get confused with prepositions. This is a short blog post about prepositions.
The words in English language (or any other language) do not just appear in any order. To convey/point across the meaning, the words have to be arranged in a specific order. Many words and phrases are joined in many ways, depending on what they want to convey. One way to link, connect, or bridge those words is by using Prepositions. What are Prepositions? In Google Dictionary, the word Preposition is defined as “a word governing, and usually preceding, a noun or pronoun and expressing a relation to another word or element in the clause, as in “the man on the platform”
There following words are one-syllable prepositions in English. They are used to show different relationships.
Location: at, by, in, near, on,
Direction: down, from, off, out, past, through, to, up
Association: for, like, of, with
In the next blog post, I am going to give example sentences using those one-syllable prepositions stated above.
