Marginal prepositions


7.2 Marginal Prepositions

A number of prepositions have affinities with other word classes. In particular, some prepositions are verbal in form:  

Following his resignation, the minister moved to the country 
I am writing to you regarding your overdraft 
The whole team was there, including John 

We refer to these as MARGINAL PREPOSITIONS. Other marginal prepositions include:

concerning, considering, excluding, given, granted, pending 

Non-verbal marginal prepositions include worth (it's worth ten pounds) and minus (ten minus two is eight).
