Class 7 English Grammar Chapter 14 The Preposition. A Preposition is a word that is placed before a Noun or Pronoun to show its relation to some other word (noun, pronoun, adjective, adverb) in a sentence. Common preposition words are till, by, after, behind, with, to, into, upon, beside, besides, between, among, over, above, under, below, since, at, on, in, from, etc.

The beauty of the English language lies in its intricate details, and one such detail is the preposition. As explored in Chapter 14 of Class 7 English Grammar, a preposition serves as a bridge, connecting nouns or pronouns to other elements within a sentence. By doing so, it crafts a clearer picture of the relationship between words. Commonly used prepositions like “in”, “on”, “under”, and “between” play a pivotal role in lending depth and direction to our expressions, making them indispensable tools in our linguistic arsenal.
