A preposition is a word which governs a noun or a pronoun and connects it to anything else if the sentence or clause. Prepositions are words or groups of words that introduce phrases; and these phrases modify some element in a sentence. What follows a preposition is normally a noun, pronoun, or noun clause. A word that follows a preposition is its object, and, in the case of pronouns especially, this affects the form of the word.
