Lista de Preposiciones más comunes

Las preposiciones son palabras de relación y dirección. Este tipo de palabras vinculan a los sustantivos, pronombres, verbos y frases en una oración. Sin preposiciones sería imposible entender la comunicación.


Por ejemplo en la frase: ‘I want go the market order get fast food’. Quizás puedas ser capaz de descifrar las palabras faltantes, pero en gramática no vamos a estar en ese plan, obviamente  las palabras faltantes son preposiciones y la frase correcta seria: ‘I want to go to the market in order to get fast food’.


Hay muchísimas preposiciones, todas ellas para mostrar la relación que hay entre ideas. Imagina a los posibles lugares que un ratón se pueda desplazar sobre una mesa: arriba, abajo, al costado, encima, debajo, detrás, aunque no se muestran muchas preposiciones al menos te da una idea de la función de una preposición.
