What is a Preposition?
A preposition can be defined as a word or group of words that show the relationship between things in time and space. Prepositions are used with nouns, pronouns, or infinitiveverb forms, and although you might have heard they should never be used at the end of a sentence, this traditional grammar rule is more accepted today when the preposition is necessary to avoidawkward phrasing.

Prepositions should not be usedexcessively, and in fact should be cut from a sentence that makes sense after removing the preposition in question, whether the preposition falls at the end of a sentence or in the middle. The more concise thewriting, the less attention readers will pay to the way the sentence is written, and the more they can focus on what you're trying to say.
