Dative Prepositions


I. Theory

Both English and German use prepositions to show the role of nouns and pronouns in the sentence or clause. They oftentimes show:

  • Motion - “to”, “from”
  • Temporality - “since”, “before”, “after”
  • Relations between words - “with”, “except”

In German, prepositions trigger cases to show two things: 1) which part of the sentence is being affected and 2) how they are affected - as some prepositions have more than one meaning. This lesson will focus on prepositions that always take the dative case.
