#EngTrivia: Preposition ‘with’

Hi, Fellas, Did you read our article on preposition yet? If you missed it, you can read the article by following this link (https://englishtips4u.com/2011/09/17/engclass-prepositions/)

For a brief description, preposition is a word that relates a noun/a pronoun with some other words in a sentence. For instance, ‘on,’ ‘at,’ ‘about’ ‘with,’ ‘in,’ ‘before,’ etc. In this session I intend to have a discussion about preposition ‘with.’

‘With’ generally shows us the position of something or the timing of an event. However, there are some specific functions of ‘with.’ This preposition is usually used to indicate:

  1. Being together/being involved.
    • Example:
      • “I was with Anna in the park.”
  1. Having something.
    • Example:
      • “I adore someone with blue eyes.”
  1. Using something.
    • Example:
      • “We cut the meat with a knife.”
  1. A feeling.
    • Example:
      • “Our team won the football competition. So, we went home with joy.”
  1. Agreement/understanding.
    • Example:
    • “I agree with you.”
