Fungsi Prepositional Phrase: Adjective atau Adverb

Prepositional phrase dapat berfungsi sebagai adjective yang menerangkan noun atau pronoun (disebut adjectival prepositional phrase); atau sebagai adverb yang menerangkan verb, adjective, atau adverb lain (disebut adverbial prepositional phrase) yang berada di dalam suatu kalimat.

Adjectival prepositional phrase mengatakan “which one” (yang mana) tentang noun ; sementara adverbial prepositional phrase menjawab pertanyaan dengan how? when? where? why? (bagaimana? kapan? di mana? mengapa?) yang berhubungan dengan kata yang diterangkannya.
