the prepositional phrase
The Prepositional Phrase

  • The noun or pronoun is called the object of the preposition.
  • The preposition, its object, and any modifiers, of the object make up a prepositional phrase.
  • The object of the preposition follows the preposition.
slide19

Ex.: The pile of dry leaves had grown much larger.

The preposition of relates its object, leaves to pile.

The adjective dry modifies leaves.

  • Ex.: He poured sauce over the pizza.

The preposition over relates its object, pizza, to poured.

a preposition may have more than one object
A preposition may have more than one object.
  • Ex.: The flea collar is forcats and dogs.

The preposition for has two objects cats and dogs.

  • Ex.: My big sister had to decide between the University of Wisconsin and Carroll College.

Ex. adverb:

tips on prepositions
TIPS on Prepositions

A preposition shows the relationship between a noun or pronoun and another word.

A preposition is always part of a phrase.

A prepositional phrase begins with a preposition and ends with a noun or pronoun- the object of the preposition. There may be more than one object.

Prepositional phrases may come at the beginning of a sentence.

Some words can be used as prepositions and as adverbs.

Figurative Language

Terms for Monday’s Quiz

simile
Simile

A simile is a direct comparison between one thing and another that is usually very different.

Similes use the words “like” or “as” to show the comparison.

Example: The children jumped like jack-in-the-boxes when they heard the noise.

metaphor
Metaphor

A metaphor expresses one thing by referring or comparing it to another thing.

It suggests a comparison by telling you that one thing is something else.

Example: Mrs. Jones is a skyscraper in a sea of sixth graders.

slide87

Metaphors usually use the linking verbs to compare.

Examples of linking verbs used in metaphors are:

am is are was

were be been become

personification
Personification

A personification gives animals, objects, or abstract ideas human qualities.

Example:

The side of the cliff was crying as we drove by on the way home.

(This can mean the rain was pouring off the cliff.)

Spongebob Squarepants is also an example of personification.

hyperbole
Hyperbole

An hyperbole is a gross exaggeration of something.

Example: Mrs. Remley gave us a ton of homework last night.

idiom
Idiom

An idiom is an expression that means something different from what it actually says.

Example: She had a chip on her shoulder.

imagery
Imagery

Imagery creates mental pictures through sensory language-words or phrases that appeal to the five senses.

onomatopoeia
Onomatopoeia

An onomatopoeia is a word that sounds the way it is spelled.

Example: zoom, hiss, buzz, crackle, quack, plop, crinkle

alliteration
Alliteration

An alliteration is the repetition of an initial (beginning) sound in the words of a line of poetry or in a story.

(If it is used too much it sounds like a tongue twister.)

Examples:

“bouncing baby boy”

“the raging, running rapids”

examples
Examples

I have a dog that is as fat as a cow.

…. dog that is as fat as a cow is a/an…

a. onomatopoeia

b. idiom

c. simile

d. metaphor

THINK…

I see a comparison.

I see the word “as”.

Hyperbole is not a choice.

The dog has not become a cow.

slide95

2. It was just sour grapes that made Little May say, “I didn’t want that ugly ribbon anyway!” when her 4-H project didn’t win at the fair. … just sour grapes is a/an…

a. alliteration

b. personification

c. metaphor

d. idiom

THINK…

There is no comparison.

There are no adjacent sounds repeated.

No objects are behaving with human qualities.
