A Big Myth


It is said we should avoid ending a sentence with a preposition. A preposition should be placed before a noun or a pronoun. The word preposition expresses “position before” so it is improper to place a preposition at the end! This is, however, not a rule. You can use a preposition to end a sentence with.


Here, you will learn when you can use a preposition at the end of a sentence and how you can avoid using a preposition at the end of a sentence.


As there is no hard and fast rule regarding use of a preposition at the end of a sentence, so whether you use it or not at the end of a sentence, it is your choice. But as most people avoid ‘excessive’ use of prepositions at the end of sentences, you can follow suit, and may use them only when they give strength to your language.


Some words (on, off, over, etc.) may be used as both prepositions and adverbs. However, everyone can’t easily differentiate between preposition and adverb. So, whenever they see these words at the end of sentences, they think that they are prepositions. As most of the people are averse to the idea of using prepositions at the end of sentences, they even don’t use these words as adverbs at the end of sentences.


Actually, it is a myth that you shouldn’t use preposition at the end of a sentence. Using a preposition at the end of a sentence is not grammatically incorrect. You can end your sentences with prepositions. Sometimes, using preposition at the end of a sentence seems better than using it in the middle or beginning of a sentence.
