Prepositional Phrase

A prepositional phrase consists of a preposition, a noun or pronoun that serves as the object of the preposition, and an adjective or two that modifies the object. Prepositional phrases usually tell us when or where something is happening. For example, "in a half hour."

A prepositional phrase used at the beginning of a sentence is called an introductory modifier. You can set apart an introductory modifier with a comma; however, it is optional unless the introductory modifier is long.
