Preposition 

Preposition helps in showing us the relationship between other words in a sentence. Like families, preposition displays the link between nouns in a sentence. Other times, prepositions help in telling you where something is or when something happened. 

Prepositions can be used under different situations, and these are referred to as Usage of Preposition.

First, a preposition can be used in Direction

Some examples of this include:

  • Look to the East  and you will see a miracle
  • Come to the class, your book has been found. 

The prepositions in those examples are to. 

Secondly, we have Preposition of Time. Examples of this include:

since in preposition

  • We have been working since yesterday
  • He has been sleeping since morning

The prepositions in those examples are since. 

Another Preposition Usage is Preposition of Location. Examples of this include:

at in preposition

  • We watched a movie at the cinemas
  • Sandra ate chicken at the mall

The prepositions in the examples are at.
