  18. The Prepositional Phrase • A preposition always has at least one noun or pronoun as an object. • The noun or pronoun is called the object of the preposition. • The preposition, its object, and any modifiers, of the object make up a prepositional phrase. • The object of the preposition follows the preposition.

  19. Ex.: The pile of dry leaves had grown much larger. The preposition of relates its object, leaves to pile. The adjective dry modifies leaves. • Ex.: He poured sauce over the pizza. The preposition over relates its object, pizza, to poured.

  20. A preposition may have more than one object. • Ex.: The flea collar is forcats and dogs. The preposition for has two objects cats and dogs. • Ex.: My big sister had to decide between the University of Wisconsin and Carroll College. The preposition between has two objects the University of Wisconsin and Carroll College.

A prepositional phrase begins with a preposition and ends with a noun or pronoun- the object of the preposition. There may be more than one object. Prepositional phrases may come at the beginning of a sentence. Some words can be used as prepositions and as adverbs.
