Prepositions with their own meaning

Prepositions with their own meaning


There are prepositions with their own meaning, others with meaning from the context, and others, without any meaning. Some prepositions have their own inherent meaning .


For example (Por ejemplo):
  • sin: indicates company denied, lack, lack, and so on.
  • bajo: designate an inferior, submissive, and so on.
  • sobre: means ‘above’, ‘about’, approach, and so on.
  • atrás: refers to a place or space after
  • ante: means ‘before’, “Regarding” to the situation.

But often, the same preposition gives different meanings, we deduce from the context.

Let’s see some examples:

Preposition (con) “CON” indicates..

  • Company: Estoy con Juan. (Iam with Juan)
  • Instrument: Lo corte con el cuchillo. (I cut it with a knife)
  • Way: El me miro con sus ojos. He saw me with his eyes.
