12 WHAT IS A PREPOSITION? NOUN: a name (a person, place or thing) Example: “Mark !” VERB: an action “Mark ran.” ADJECTIVE: a modifier (describes a noun) “Mark ran to the closest C.R.” ADVERB: a modifier (describes a verb) “Mark ran to the closest C.R. quickly.” Preposition ?!?! PRONOUN: replaces a noun (“He” or “I” instead of “Mark”)

13 WHAT IS A PREPOSITION?  Definition: A word that explains the time, space or logical relationship between the other parts of the sentence. (Time) “Mark ran for three hours.” (Space) “Mark ran to the C.R.” (Relationship) “Mark visited the house of Belinda Lora.”

14 WHAT IS A PREPOSITION? Easy way to remember: a word that shows the relationship between two things.

15 PREPOSITION RULES 1. Some prepositions must be used with certain words and sometimes they don’t have any logical relationship. “I usually drink coffee in the morning.” “I slept in this morning and missed my bus.” “I tried to catch the dog, but it ran away.”

16 PREPOSITION RULES 1. Prepositions must be followed by nouns, and they usually should not go at the end of the sentence. Examples: Wrong: “Who are you talking to?” Right: “To whom are you talking?” Wrong: “Where are you coming from?” Right: “From where are you coming?”

17 PREPOSITIONS REVIEW  Instructions: with a partner, read the following passage and write down all the prepositions.
