Adposition

In grammar, an adposition is a word or affix which shows a word's grammatical function.

The two types of adposition are prepositions and postpositions. Prefixes and suffixes can also take on these roles: the Basque allative (motion towards) postposition is the suffix -ra: etxera = "to the house".
