    Re: preposition?

    http://www.macmillandictionary.com/d...ritish/join-in. That's about the function of "in". The rest will have to wait, for the time being.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: preposition?

    A noun clause is a clause that acts as a noun in a sentence. It is not a sentence.
