Pronouns And Prepositions


The prepositions in that phrase had a lot to do with changing the meaning.
There is a rather old-fashioned rule that says that you should never end a sentence with a preposition.
In general, it’s not a bad rule to follow. But there are times when the rule just doesn’t
work. Winston Churchill, the famed Prime Minister of Great Britain and a highly competent
writer and speaker, once joked about the diffi culty of conforming to that rule about prepositions
when he said:
“That is nonsense up with which I shall not put.”
Sometimes a preposition just has to fall at the end of a sentence in order to make sense and not
to sound awkward. You will encounter prepositions here in practical forms and in forms that
conform to contemporary English.
This book will guide you through the maze of prepositional types and uses and clarify their function
in a sentence. They will be described and illustrated for you, and then you will have ample
opportunity to practice with them in the exercises. And, as with pronouns, there will be numerous
kinds of exercises for prepositions.
Take advantage of the contents of this book and increase your ability to use pronouns and prepositions
effectively and accurately. This will be an important step in increasing your skill in speaking
and writing English.
