  • Preposition (P) – a special group of words that connects a noun or pronoun to the rest of the sentence.
  • Prepositions must have objects of prepositions.
  • Object of the preposition (OP) – the noun or pronoun after the preposition. To find the object of the preposition, find the preposition then ask what or whom.
  • If there is no object of the preposition, then the suspected preposition is usually an adverb.
  • For example: I fell down. Down has no object and is an adverb because it tells where I fell. I fell down the stairs. Down what? stairs = OP.
