Prepositions

Wechselpräpositionen

Introduction Einführung
Prepositions express spatial, temporal or conceptual relations relations between two objects. In English words like "with" and "for" are two examples.

They can also be referred to as adpositions, because not all languages place prepositions before the object (hence pre).
