Preposition
Preposition English literature

  • Preposition is a part of speech which denotes the relation between objects and phenomena. It shows the relations between a noun or a pronoun and other words.

  • Defining the preposition there are three main properties:

  • 1) the preposition is a functional part of speech and cannot perform an independent syntactic function.

  • 2) the preposition is a word expressing subordinate relations between lexical parts of speech

  • 3)the preposition is a word with an obligatory pre-nounal position: it may follow almost any part of speech, but it must precede a noun or its syntactic equivalent.


Position of prepositions
Position of prepositions English literature

  • Prepositions normally precede nouns or pronouns. In two constructions, however it is possible in informal English to move the preposition to the end of the sentence:

  • 1) In questions beginning with a preposition+ whom/which/what/whose/where

  • Tom whom were you talking? (formal)

  • Who were you talking to? (informal)

  • 2) Similarly in relative clauses, a preposition placed before whom/which can be moved to the end of the clause.

  • the people with whom I was travelling (formal)

  • The people I was travelling with (informal)


Morphological structure
Morphological structure English literature

  • Prepositions, like functional parts of speech in general, are a complicated and controversial phenomenon.

  • As to their morphological structure, prepositions fall under the following groups:

  • 1)simple ( in, on, at, for, with)

  • 2)derivative (behind, below, across, along)

  • 3)compound (inside , outside, within, without )

  • 4)composite (because of, in front of, in accordance with)
