Learn about prepositions of time
Grammar is the strength of the English language. Its incorrect usage can kill the meaning of a sentence. Generally, people get confused between prepositions, such as “at, in, and on”. A preposition is one of the most important parts of speech. A preposition is a word that shows the relation between a word and a noun or a pronoun that comes after the preposition. Understanding prepositions are important for a strong grammatical base.
There are three types of preposition, namely:
1. Preposition of place
2. Preposition of time
3. Preposition of movement
Let’s learn prepositions of time. Prepositions of time include at, on, in, by, till, until, up to, during, for, throughout and since.
At 3 o'clock
In the Summer
On 7 May
On 12th September
At the moment
In the past/future
On the New Year’s Eve
in the next century
On Independence Day
In the Ice Age
On my birthday
At dinner time
On 31st July 1990
- I have a meeting at 5 PM
- The shop closes at 8 o'clock
- Shilpa went home at 7:30 PM
- In Mumbai, it often rains in June
- Do you think we will go to Jupiter in the future?
- There should be a lot of progress in the next century.
- Do you work on Sundays?
- His birthday is on 31 July.
- Where will you be on Valentine’s Day?
Preposition of time ‘at’ in the following regular expressions:
The stars shine at night.
At the same time
We finished the test at the same time.
He's not home at present. Try later.
Preposition of time in and on in the following regular expressions:
In the morning
On a Monday morning
In the mornings
On Sunday mornings
In the afternoon(s)
On Saturday afternoon(s)
In the evening(s)
On Friday evening(s)
When you use ‘last, next, every, this’ in your sentence, don’t use at, in, on.
- I went to Delhi last (notin last June)
- He's coming back next (noton next Monday)
- I go home every (notat every Easter)
- We'll call you this (notin this evening)
The above-mentioned examples of prepositions will help you complete the sentence formation. Keep practicing these prepositions and improve your communication skills by using them appropriately.
