In this lesson, our instructor Rebekah Hendershot goes through an introduction on prepositions. She starts by explaining what prepositions are. Then, she discusses prepositional phrases and how to use prepositions correctly.
Prepositions express the relationship (often in time or space) between two words in a sentence.
Think of prepositions as anything you can do to a log.
Prepositions are used in prepositional phrases, which begin with a preposition and end with its object.
Always use prepositions in prepositional phrases. Use those phrases as you would use an adjective or adverb. Never end a sentence with a preposition.
