A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition.

A preposition usually indicates the temporal, spatial or logical relationship of its object to the rest of the sentence as in the following examples:

The book isonthe table.
The book isbeneaththe table.
The book is leaningagainstthe table.
The book isbesidethe table.
She held the bookoverthe table.
She read the bookduringclass
