Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

This page contains a clean text list of prepositions in the english language. Prepositions are, for those that do not remember middle school english class, words “used to express spatial or temporal relations or mark various semantic roles.”

Prepositions work by combining with a noun (person, place or thing) creating what is called a “complement” to the noun. As this is merely a site for lists we will avoid the complicated grammatical rules for prepositions but just note there’s over 100 prepositions used in the english language. The hidden secret of the prepositions is that it really depends on how a word is used that depends on whether the word is preposition or not. That said, the section below contains a list of words to be on the look out for.
