Macmillan Dictionary

Prepositions include words such as: in, to, from, for, beyond, over, under, with.

We use prepositions when we want to join a noun to rest of a sentence. For example,

• Colonel Mustard murdered Miss Scarlet.
• Colonel Mustard murdered Miss Scarlet in the Library.
• Colonel Mustard murdered Miss Scarlet in the Library, with the candlestick.

A preposition is always followed by a noun or something similar, such as a pronoun (e.g. them, it, everything).
