Weegy: Recognize a prepositional phrase when you see one. At the minimum, a prepositional phrase will begin with a preposition and end with a noun, pronoun, gerund, or clause, [ the "object" of the preposition. The object of the preposition will often have one or more modifiers to describe it. These are the patterns for a prepositional phrase: preposition + noun, pronoun, gerund, or clause preposition + modifier(s) + noun, pronoun, gerund, or clause Here are some examples of the most basic prepositional phrase: At home At = preposition; home = noun. In time In = preposition; time = noun. From Richie From = preposition; Richie = noun. With me With = preposition; me = pronoun. By singing By = preposition; singing = gerund. About what we need About = preposition; what we need = noun clause. Most prepositional phrases are longer, like these: From my grandmother From = preposition; my = modifier; grandmother = noun. Under the warm blanket Under = preposition; the, warm = modifiers; blanket = noun. In the weedy, overgrown garden In = preposition; the, weedy, overgrown = modifiers; garden = noun. Along the busy, six-lane highway Along = preposition; the, busy, six-lane = modifiers; highway = noun. Without excessively worrying Without = preposition; excessively = modifier; worrying = gerund. ]

Weegy: Prepositional phrases are groups of words beginning with a preposition and ending with an object of the preposition. Psst! Object of the preposition is just a fancy name for the noun or pronoun that follows the preposition. near hotels, for Isaac, [ at Kyle's bowling ball The whole phrase comes together to function as one part of speech. These guys usually act as adjectives or adverbs.Notice that the phrases above all begin with prepositions (near, for, at) and end with nouns or pronouns (hotels, Isaac, bowling ball). These phrases must all have a preposition and an object of the preposition, and they may also have other words in them. They may have adjectives that describe the object of the preposition. near fancy hotels at Kyle's bowling ball across the large bedroom They may also have adverbs modifying the adjectives. near extremely fancy hotels across the rather large bedroom ]
