or title a PDF book can explain this to me.
AS, 1. adverbial prepositions.
2. prepositional phrase. And so on. please I want to know the forms of prepositions.
Thank you all.
Yes, I do so.
I've googling English prepositions, forms of English prepositions, Prepositions in English. NOTHING.
Just articles discuss what is prepositions, list of common prepositions, types of prepositions.
They don't talk about the forms of prepositions.
Guys please HELP me!
You say you have googled lists and types of prepositions, so you know what words are prepositions. What exactly do you mean by 'forms' of prepositions?

Is the prepositions have forms like verb and other part of speech?
I don't know if it calls form or not.
As, pre+n or pro call nominal phrase.
pre+ v call phrasal verb
I don't know if this is correct or not, but I need your help guys to tell me if the prepositions have different forms
or just one form?
because I read an article said that preposition USUALLY followed by noun or pronoun.
So, this means there is other things followed prepositions
Are the prepositional phrase, prepositional verb forms of prepositions >>>>>guys you are native speakers and this is your own language you know what is the right things so help me.
You are simply asking too many questions at one time. The immediate result is that your last post was confusing; the next result will be that the answers will be confusing. Pick one thing that puzzles you about prepositions, compose the question about it carefully, and submit it here. It will probably be answered quite quickly.
If you have a related question, you can then ask that here.Iif your other questions are on a different aspect of prepositional usage, then start a new thread.
We are happy to help you if we can, but we are not going to write your paper for you.
The fact that no one can help you off the top of their heads means that there's probably no systematic listing of which words can come after prepositions. Anyone can say, "Oh, this is an adverbial preposition" without knowing about a schema. (In fact, they probably mean a prepositional phrase that functions as an adverb.)
To me, there's only one "form" of preposition - that which introduces a prepositional phrase.
You might be better rewarded by studying the types and uses of such phrases.
"I went to the shops in my car" - "in my car" is an adverbial phrase of manner.
"The boy with the green shirt is very mean." - "with the green shirt" is an adjectival phrase.
The prepositions in above sentences, 'in' and 'with' can front any sort of phrase (speaking generally). The preposition is not the syntactical element that is interesting - the phrase is.
