    Re: Prepostion

    If it helps:

    The word 'smoking' (for example) is not always a verb.

    "He is smoking." (verb)
    "Smoking is bad for you," (noun)

    "I am tired of television." (preposition + noun)
    "I am tired of smoking." (preposition + noun)

    The word 'to' is not always a preposition.

    "I want to go." (particle (not preposition) + verb (always infinitive/base form)
    "They went to Karachi." (preposition + noun)

    You might be confused by:

    "I used to go." (particle (not preposition) + verb)
    "I am/got used to hot weather." (preposition + noun)
    "I am used to smoking." (preposition + noun)

    Keep up the reading. Hope you aren't more confused.
