What is a Proposition?

A preposition is a word which usually precedes a noun, a pronoun or a gerund. The word which follows the preposition is called the object of the preposition.
Examples of Preposition are:

The man is standing at the gate.

I am tired of talking.

Prepositions show the relationship of its object with another word or idea in the sentence.

The car moved towards the tunnel.

(Relationship between a car’s movement and the tunnel)

What are the Types of Prepositions?

There are five basic types of prepositions:

1. Simple prepositions

Prepositions which consist of just one word are known as simple prepositions

An example of simple preposition is - The Sharmas house was set on fire.

2. Compound prepositions

Prepositions which are formed out of prefixing a preposition (a- or be-) with a noun or an adjective are known as compound prepositions.

An example of a Compound Preposition is - A bridge was built across the river.

3. Double prepositions

When two prepositions come together to convey a single idea, the pair is called a double preposition.

An example of a Double preposition is - She went along with her mother.

4. Participial prepositions

When a verb ending in –ing or –ed/–en functions as a preposition, it is called a participle preposition

An example of Participial preposition is - Given the nature of the situation, it is fair that he apologises.

5. Phrase prepositions

Phrase prepositions are formed when a group of words come together to function as a unit. These prepositions usually follow the Preposition + Noun + Preposition structure.

An example of Phrase preposition is - The police arrested the offender in spite of his resistance.
