    for ... to

    Hi,

    Is "from ... to" a preposition? An adverb?

    e.g. "from A to B"

    Regards,
    Johnny

    In the absence of any context, I'd have to say it was a preposition.

    In the sentence: "From May 1997 to May 2000, the city’s population swelled by 400,000 people."
    What are "from" and "to" classified as?
