A prepositional phrase may do the work of a noun, adverb or adjective. When a prepositional phrase modifies a noun in a sentence, it becomes an “adjective prepositional phrase.”

In the sentences below, the adjective prepositional phrase is set in italics, and the noun it modifies is set in bold.

  1. The house at the end of the street is beautiful.
  2. People from all over the country admire it.
  3. Cricket is a game of champions.
