Description


Prepositions are invariable words that serve as a link between the different parts of a sentence and introduce complements. The Spanish preposition "de" is often thought of as the equivalent of "of" and sometimes as "from." It indicates the beginning of a period of time "from…" "to…" This preposition is also commonly used to express possession, nationality, subject, and cause. It can even be used to express what something is made of or the time in which something happened.
