Apr 3rd, 2015

Preposition is one of the 8 parts of speech. They are the words that gives the positioning of noun, hence the root word postion(e.g.: in ,, around, at,about up ,down, over, under, above). Prepositional phrase is where a sentence starts out with the preposition and ends with a noun, pronoun, gerund (noun with -ing), or clauses (subecject+predicates). You can add a modifier (descriptive word) in betwee teh preposition and the ending noun, pronoun, gerund, or clause.

Ex.    Below the bridge, trolls sleep.

          At school, children learn to play.

Can "to" be a preposition?

Yes, it can. If you write two prepositions next to each other such as "up" "to", "up" acts as a modifying preposition.
