                                                A prepositional phrase will function as an adjective or adverb.

                                                介词短语可以做形容词和副词。

                                                做形容词时,修饰前面的名词

                                                例如:1–2 mm in diameter papules

                                                做副词时,修饰前面的动词

                                                例如:vary in size

                                                Remember that a prepositional phrase will never contain the subject of a sentence. Sometimes a noun within the prepositional phrase seems the logical subject of a verb. Don't fall for that trick! You will never find a subject in a prepositional phrase.

                                                  形容词短语后置于名词,修饰前面的名词

                                                  Reduce to an Adjective Phrase

                                                  1. Remove the relative pronoun
                                                  2. Remove the verb (usually 'be', but also 'seem', 'appear', etc.)
                                                  3. Place the adjective phrase after the modified noun

                                                  Examples:

                                                  The product, which seemed perfect in many ways, failed to succeed in the market. -> Reduced: The product, perfect in many ways, failed to succeed in the market.The boy who was pleased by his grades went out with his friends to celebrate. -> Reduced: The boy pleased by his grades went out with his friends to celebrate.
