Prepositions are useful little connector words or groups of words that help us know how certain nouns, pronouns, or noun phrases work with other parts of the sentence. They most often connect the above to verbs, nouns, and adjectives, giving us information about the direction, location, position, method, or time something happens. They can also be used to introduce an object. You can usually find a preposition or a prepositional phrase near the end of a sentence.
