The Prepositional Phrase Maze

A prepositional phrase is also a modifier. It is a group of words that follows the noun or pronoun that it is modifying. For example, in the phrase “flowers in the vase,” flowers is a noun and in the vase is a prepositional phrase that modifies flowers.

A prepositional phrase gives you more information about a noun. A prepositional phrase consists of a preposition and an object. The preposition itself is a connecting word; it connects the noun or pronoun that follows it (the object of the preposition) with some other word in the sentence.
