The prepositional phrase is a group of words working as a word team. The prepositional phrase begins with a preposition, for example, “in, out, under,” and ends with an object. For example: out of the house, under the table, in the bathroom.
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.
- The house at the end of the street is beautiful.
- People from all over the country admire it.
- Cricket is a game of champions.
