A preposition links together an object with a phrase to act as an adjective or adverb. For example, in the sentence "She eats a jar of olives," the preposition is "of" and the object is "olives". Together they form the prepositional phrase "of olives," which acts as an adjective, modifying the noun "jar".

The prepositional phrase can also act as an adverb and modify a verb. For example, "The jar is on the table." In this case, the prepositional phrase "on the table" is modifying the verb "is".

Some of the most common prepositions include: about, above, across, after, against, along, among, around, at, before, behind, below, beneath, beside, between, beyond, but, by, despite, down, during, except, for, from, in, inside, into, like, near, of, off, on, onto, out, outside, over, past, since, through, throughout, till, to, toward, under, underneath, until, up, upon, with, within and without.
