Today's Writing Tip from Rosemary Camilleri


What is a prepositional phrase?

A preposition is positioned before ("pre") a noun. A preposition is usually a single word (in, of, with, by, beyond, during, regarding) but it can be a phrase (such as, for instance, aside from, in addition to).

Can you find the prepositional phrase(s) in each of these sentences?

  1. He stood by the corner of the building.
  2. She ordered a salad with croutons.
  3. A story about a princess calmed the little girl.
  4. Aside from his politics, he is a likable fellow.
Each of these sentences includes a mistake in the use of a prepositional phrase. Can you fix the mistake?
  1. There was a broad park across the street with a lake in it.
  2. This internship improved their resumes for future employment with valuable experience.
  3. In addition to knowledge deficit, a support group can also meet emotional needs.
  4. Education and support of persons with terminal illness provided by a nurse is an important factor.
In the first four sentences, the top contestant (so far) has found five prepositional phrases, and fixed 5 through 7 merely by changing the word order. Sentence 8 required substantial revision because the error involved a dangling participle-can you identify it?
