What is a preposition? A preposition is a word that describes the relationship between a word/phrase before it and a word/phrase that follows it. For example, in the sentence, “The truck drove over the river.” the preposition is “over” and it explains the relationship between “truck” and “river.” Where was the truck in relation to the river? It was over it.
