i've found this sentence.
i had been waiting over an hour when they announced the train had been cancelled
what does "over" mean? and how is it used as a tenoral preposition?
Please use a capital letter for the personal pronoun 'I' and for the first letter ofa sentence.
'Over' means 'more/longer than'. I don't know what you mean by 'tenoral preposition'.
Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

"Over" means "more than" in this context. Also, I believe you mean temporal preposition. It modifies "an hour" in order to give you a sense of when something occurred.
Edit: Sorry for the redundant post. Looks like I got bumped not once, but twice.
Don't worry, thank you anyway.
OK I'll use it next time, thanks for helping me.
