The following are all prepositions:

above, about, across, against, along, among, around, at, before, behind, below, beneath, beside, between, beyond, by, down, during, except, for, from, in, inside, into, like, near, of, off, on, since, to, toward, through, under, until, up, upon, with and within.

Role of a Preposition

Prepositions are important when constructing sentences. A preposition sits before a noun to show the noun's relationship to another word in the sentence. 

Examples:

 It is a container for butter.
(The preposition "for" shows the relationship between "butter" and "container".)

 The eagle soared above the clouds.
(The preposition "above" shows the relationship between "clouds" and "soared".)
