    English Preposition Rule

    There is one very simple rule about prepositions. And, unlike most rules, this rule has no exceptions.

    Rule
    A preposition is followed by a "noun". It is never followed by a verb.

    By "noun" we include:

    * noun (dog, money, love)
    * proper noun (name) (Bangkok, Mary)
    * pronoun (you, him, us)
    * noun group (my first job)
    * gerund (swimming)

    A preposition cannot be followed by a verb. If we want to follow a preposition by a verb, we must use the "-ing" form which is really a gerund or verb in noun form.

    Quick Quiz: In the following sentences, why is "to" followed by a verb? That should be impossible, according to the above rule:

    * I would like to go now.
    * She used to smoke.

    Answer to Quick Quiz: In these sentences, "to" is not a preposition. It is part of the infinitive ("to go", "to smoke").

    Here are some examples:
