100 Important Preposition List in English

100 Important Preposition List in English! A preposition or postposition is usually used in conjunction with a noun phrase, which is referred to as its complement or object.

Most English speakers can recall only a few popular prepositions, despite the fact that there are approximately 100 different prepositions. Three of these prepositions, of, to, and, in, are among the top 10 most commonly used terms in the English language.

In English, prepositions are quite idiomatic. Although there are some useful guidelines, fixed expressions govern a lot of preposition usage. It is preferable to memories the phrase rather than the individual preposition in these situations.
