There is always a piece that holds everything together, sometimes it is called the piece of resistance, due to its key role in maintaining or revolutionizing the place where it lies. Prepositions play that role in each sentence despite being functional and lacking the ability to deliver meaning on their own. Without their unique ability to connect and bond the sentences, there would be no meaning possible.

The preceding table shows all of English prepositions and their role in creating crucial sentence connections. Let’s check how those prepositions are implemented in sentences.
