A preposition is a word that relates or connects words in a sentence to each other. Prepositions can show direction, place, or time as well as other relationships. All prepositions have objects. The object of a preposition is the word or phrase it refers or relates to. A preposition and its object together are called a prepositional phrase. In most cases, the preposition comes just before its object.
