Ending a sentence with preposition

Ending a sentence in a preposition is something that you should avoid. A common example is “Where are you at?” This sounds awkward to most people because we are used to hearing “Where are you?” or “What do you do?” as the last part of the sentence.

When a preposition is used at the end of a sentence, it’s important to know which prepositions are correct. You should always avoid using “to” or “for” as the last word in a sentence, according to Grammarly. Instead, use “to” when you’re listing verbs or actions and “for” when you’re referring to something that is done for someone else.

But there are times when ending a sentence in a preposition can be effective:

  1. “Where are you going?” asked my mom as she put on her coat.
  2. “I’m going out,” I said, not adding anything else because I didn’t want to tell her where I was going or why.
  3. The preposition “of” may be used at the end of a sentence.
  4. Incorrect: She told me about her new car.
  5. Correct: She told me about her new car of which she was very proud.
  6. Incorrect: He thought that it was ridiculous to dream about travel abroad.
  7. Correct: He thought that it was ridiculous to dream about travel abroad of which he had never been before in his life.
  8. When a preposition is used at the end of a sentence, it’s important to know which prepositions are correct. You should always avoid using “to” or “for” as the last word in a sentence, according to Grammarly. Instead, use “to” when you’re listing verbs or actions and “for” when you’re referring to something that is done for someone else. For example:
  9. I live in New York City.
  10. I live for my family.
  11. The dog chased the cat out of the yard.
