Prepozitii de timp At, In , On – Cand si cum le folosim?

Ce sunt prepozitiile de timp? Cand si cum folosim prepozitiile de timp – at, in, on? In acest articol, poti vedea cele mai importante situatii si cazuri cand folosim prepozitiile at, in, on cu exemple si chiar exercitii.

Prepozitiile sunt foarte importante pentru a modifica sensul propozitiilor. Sunt cuvinte scurte, folosite inainte substantivelor sau pronumelor. Ele fac legatura intre pronume sau substantive si restul propozitiilor din care fac parte.
ex. I get up early in the morning.

Prepozitiile de timp ne spun cand ceva se intampla. Stim cand are loc un eveniment, datorita prepozitiilor de timp.


  • I like to relax in the evening.

Cand le folosim?

Folosim prepozitiile de timp cand vorbim despre o perioada de timp, data, zile ale saptamanii, luni, ani, anotimpuri sau cand are loc un eveniment.

Ca forma prepozitiile de timp: at, in, on, au aceeasi forma ca si prepozitiile de loc insa aceastea din urma sunt folosite diferit.

Este usor sa faci diferenta intre prepozitiile de timp si prepozitiile de loc. Primele arata momentul cand are loc evenimentul sau se intampla ceva. Prepozitiile de loc arata unde are loc evenimentul sau se intampla ceva.
