ANSWER KEY Prepositional Phrases As Adjectives A prepositional phrase is a group of words beginning with a preposition and ending with a noun or pronoun. The noun or pronoun at the end of the phrase is called the object of the preposition. Often there are other descriptive words between the preposition and its object. Sometimes prepositional phrases do the job of an adjective. The prepositional phrase tells us which one. example: The little boy in the red jacket is my brother, Henry. In the red jacket is the prepositional phrase. In is the preposition, and jacket is the object. Red describes the jacket. The entire phrase, in the red jacket , tells us which boy. Underline the prepositional phrase in each sentence below. Circle the word it describes. 1. My favorite place to walk is the park across the street . 2. The wooden bridge over the muddy creek was built last year. 3. Those trees beside the lake are willows. 4. The tall evergreens behind the playground are spruce trees. 5.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
