    Prepositions 又叫介系詞!

    基本上用係四大方面: 時間,地方,位置,行動

    另外又會同埋其他詞一切用: 名詞, 動詞, 形容詞

    介系詞係在敘述句子中其他字之間的關係。in 或 after 等介系詞本身沒有意義,且很難用字來定義。例如,當你試著定義 in 或 between 或 on 等介系詞時,你必須用雙手來表現某物與他物之間的位置關係。介系詞幾乎都是與其他字結合成所謂的介系詞片語結構。介系詞片語可由一百萬個字來構成,但它們的構造似乎都相同:一個介系詞後面接一個或兩個修飾語,再接一個名詞 (稱為介系詞的受詞)。然後,這整個片語扮演修飾的角色 -- 作為形容詞或副詞,指出某事物的空間和時間,或說明某事是在何時、何地或何種情況下發生。
