A preposition is basically a word that can’t stand alone because it wouldn’t make sense by itself. So, examples of a preposition would be “in“, “under“, or “around“. You notice these words can’t stand by themselves because they don’t make sense by themselves.

A prepositional phrase might look like “in the tree” or “around the corner“.
