Ah… the prepositions! The writer's good old friends - now you’re talking! Who hasn’t had the great moments as well as the disastrous ones with prepositions - these independent little words, full of purpose and self-assurance!

Get to know them well and there is no danger of misunderstanding them, as there is no nonsense about them. Avoid befriending them and you'll always have to think hard when linking your words - be it in speech or in writing.

From what we know about weakening words in our sentences, when you realise the role of leverage that prepositions have between a verb and a noun, you will realise that the prepositions qualify verbs but they do not weaken. They do not repeat meaning, but they rather add meaning to the sentence.

“The car flew over the river bank.”
“The gull flew out from and down the cliff.”

Observe how in the latter example prepositions were used to give two distinct motions to a single verb! Next, observe how they can have as much authority as to dispense with the verb altogether:

“Right lads, into the house!”

I recommend abundant practice both with prepositions and with prepositional phrases, to help you become fluent and coherent both in speech and in writing.
