Reflection: Adaptive Technology Locating Prepositional Phrases - Section 4: Closure


A common misconception that I found that I had to address was scholars confusing the direct object as the object of the preposition.  I helped them to distinguish the two by giving them the example - He tossed a small pebble across the lake.  In this sentence the direct object is what was tossed - a small pebble.  The prepositional phrase is "across the lake," the preposition is "across" and the object of the preposition is "the lake."  I explained to them that in order for a noun or pronoun to be the object of the preposition, it must be contained in a prepositional phrase.  This helped to clarify misunderstandings for most of them.
