INTRODUCTION
Prepositions pose more problems for the non-native speaker or learner of English
than any other part of speech. Why? Prepositions are just little words that never
change in form; they are pronounced softly, in unstressed syllables; they aren't even
given capital letters in book titles; native speakers choose the correct ones without
thinking. How can they be confusing?
The word "preposition" has a straightforward definition: a word placed before a
noun or pronoun to define its relationship with another word in the sentence. For the
learner of English, however, prepositions are anything but straightforward.
—Prepositions are difficult, if not impossible, to define without using other
prepositions.
Example:
In the sentence, "The book is on the table," what does on mean?
On means "above and supported by."
—In no other language are the prepositions (if they exist at all) the exact equivalents
of English prepositions.
Example:
Spanish English
Vive en Washington. He lives in Washington.
Vive en la Avenida New Jersey. He lives on New Jersey Avenue.
El está en el aeropuerto. He is at the airport.
Estoy pensando en ti. I am thinking about you, or
I am thinking of you.
—Many preposition words can also be adverbs or conjunctions.
Examples:
the preposition down She walked down the hill.
the adverb down He put the book down.
the preposition after She took a nap after lunch.
the conjunction after She went outside after she put the book
down.
—Many prepositions can indicate more than one meaning or relationship. 内容来自淘豆网www.taodocs.com转载请标明出处.
