List of Common Prepositions

 

When building a list of common prepositions... where should you start?

Should we being with prepositions of place and time? What about prepositions of ways and means? Or maybe even prepositions of manner?

Exactly!

There's a lot to consider when it comes to putting together a list of prepositions.

At any rate, I've chosen those that seem to be the most common and would make the list of most teachers, so below you'll find my list of common prepositions.

One more thing, at the bottom of this page you'll find a link that takes you to another page of prepositions that includes exercises and advice on how to best learn and remember them.
