The Latin prepositional phrase consists of a preposition and a noun object in the correct case. This video covers the basics of prepositions and their phrases, including those prepositions that take the accusative, those that take the ablative, and those that take both. It’s a good idea to learn a lot of these prepositions - they are also used as prefixes on verbs, and you’ll be able to understand the meaning of many new verbs simply by breaking apart the preposition-prefix from the base verb. This video introduces you to prepositions that take the ablative, like ab, cum, dē, ex, prō, and sine, those that take the accusative, like ad, ante, apud, circum, inter, ob, per, post, prope, and trāns, and those that take both the ablative and accusative, like in and sub.
