Unit 13: Lesson 2Prepositional Phrases as Adjectives


Remember adjectives? They describe nouns or pronouns.

They answer the questions:

  • What kind?

  • Which one?

  • How many?


A prepositional phrase can also describe nouns or pronouns.

Remember, a prepositional phrase is a group of words containing a preposition, its object, and any modifiers of the object.

A prepositional phrase that describes a noun or pronoun is called an adjective phrase.


Like adjectives, an adjective phrase answers questions such as…

1. which one?

2. what kind?

I brought a blanket with blue stripes.
