Prepositions

Indicating relationships


 

Prepositions in the English language are crucial as they connect nouns, pronouns, and phrases to other words in a sentence, indicating relationships of time, place, direction, cause, manner, and possession. They help convey precise meanings and context, enhancing clarity and coherence in communication. Without prepositions, sentences would lack the necessary detail to fully express ideas and relationships.
