The preposition, the sixth part of speech, is a word that shows the relation-
between a noun (or a pronoun) and another word in the sentence.

Mollie walked into her aunts house. (Into connects walked and house.)

My mom exercises quietly in the morning. (In connects the idea of

exercises and morning.)

The professor placed the book underneath the large desk. (Underneath

connects the idea of placed and desk.)

Note: To remember many of the one-word prepositions listed in the following

box, remember the sentence, The plane flew ..............the clouds.

Any word that can be logically placed into that blank is a preposition. Then

simply memorize those few that do not work in that sentence (aboard, as,

but, concerning, despite, during, except, like, of , out, since, till, until, with, and

without), and you will know your prepositions!
