Prepositional Phrase - An Introduction
Objectives
Students should be able to;
Recognize prepositions
Identify prepositional phrases as adjectives or adverbs
Reduce the wordiness of sentences by changing prepositional phrases to single adjectives or adverbs.

The words at, in, of, on and to are examples of prepositions.

A word such as a noun, pronoun or gerund following a preposition is said to be the object of the preposition.

Examples
He owns the house on the corner.

 We are waiting for her.

 She has read many books about flying.


A preposition serves to connect its object with the rest of a sentence.

He owns the house on the corner.
The preposition on indicates that the words the corner express the location of the house referred to in the rest of the sentence.
This phrase is an adjective.

We are waiting for her.
The preposition for indicates that the word her expresses the reason for the action of waiting referred to in the rest of the sentence.
This phrase is an adverb.
All prepositional phrases are adjectives and adverbs.

Reduce Wordiness
Replace prepositional phrases with one-word modifiers when possible. Prepositional phrases, those little relationship words like "of," "from," "after," etc., tend to bring in a lot of "-tion" and "-sion" words, too.


Wordy
