This ebook is not a “dictionary of prepositions” because it doesn’t give meanings, which you can find in any dictionary. What it does is to give you virtually all the English prepositions in one place and show you 400 example sentences showing prepositions in context. It also tests your understanding with 200 preposition quiz questions (answers supplied).
This ebook contains a list of most English prepositions in use today.
The first section lists “one-word prepositions” (for example before, into, on). The second section lists “complex prepositions” (phrases of two or more words that function like one-word prepositions, for example according to, but for, in spite of).
The name “preposition” (pre + position) means “place before”. Prepositions usually come before another word, usually a noun or noun phrase:
- noun phrase
- gerund (verb in -ing form)
If a preposition does not come before another word, it is still closely linked to another word:
- Who did you talk to?
- To whom did you talk?
- I talked to Jane.
Many prepositions can also be adverbs:
- They are in the kitchen. preposition
- Please come in. adverb
A few prepositions can also be conjunctions:
- Everyone came but Tara. preposition
- I asked her but she didn’t answer. conjunction
Abbreviations used in this ebook:
conj. = conjunction
