    preposition help
    By Heidi

    Clip to ScrapBook
    My high school english teacher gave us a quick way to see if a word started a prepositional phrase.

    The bird flew ______ the cage.

    If the word in question made sense in the sentence, it was probably the starting of a prep. phrase.

    ex. The bird flew through the cage.

    The bird flew in the cage.
    The bird flew at the cage.

    etc. etc...
