PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES

Set phrases or groups of words introduced by a preposition:
AT, BY, FOR, IN, ON, OUT, UNDER, WITHIN, WITHOUT


Prepositional phrases are set phrases or groups of words introduced by a preposition.

Prepositional phrases usually act just like an adjective or adverb, i.e. they provide more information.
For example, if a girl is 'in tears', 'in' is a preposition and 'tears' is the object of the preposition.
The two words together form a prepositional phrase which gives more information about the girl.

In the list of pages below you will find examples of commonly-used propositional phrases with their meaning and a sentence showing how they are used.
