There are about 150 prepositions in English.
Yet this is a very small number when you think
of the thousands of other words (nouns, verbs
etc). Prepositions are important words. We use
individual prepositions more frequently than
other individual words. In fact, the
prepositions of, to and in are among the ten
most frequent words in English. Here is a short
list of 70 of the more common one-word
prepositions. Many of these prepositions have
more than one meaning. Please refer to a
dictionary for precise meaning and usage.
