What is a preposition?
As mentioned in the graphic, a preposition is a word which connects two parts of a sentence. In the example below we have said: we keep our eggs in the fridge. Here the preposition “in” connects the sentence together. Without the preposition the sentence would look like this: we keep our eggs…the fridge. So we have two parts of a sentence but it doesn’t make sense as there is nothing connecting the eggs and the fridge together.
What are prepositions of time?
With prepositions of time, the preposition connects something to a certain time. For example: my birthday is on 22nd June. Here the preposition connects my birthday with the actual date of my birthday.
