Phrasal-Adjectives With Prepositions – Prepositional Phrasal-Adjectives

– Prepositional Phrasal-Adjectives & Adjectival Phrases –

Click on the letter below to find an alphabetical list of Prepositional Phrasal-Adjectives for each letter (organized alphabetically by the Noun or Verb in each Phrase.

The purpose for this is because there is not always an actual Adjective in the Phrase but that the entire Phrase, IS the Adjective  (See description below.)


A .

B .

C .

D .

E .

F .

G .

K .

L .

M . 

N .

O .

P .

Q .

R .

The Adjectival Phrases and Phrasal-Adjectives on each page are organized alphabetically by the Noun or Verb in the Phrase (not by the Adjective, Adverb, or Preposition.)  For example, if the Adjective Phrase is…

“(someone/thing looks) Run Down…”

…the verb in this phrase is “Run”.  So you will search for this Phrase under Letter “R”.


I acknowledge that sometimes one might accidentally search under “D” for “Down”.  In these cases, you will find a link to the correct page.  And, for any Phrase that contains a Preposition, you can also find the Phrase in appropriate Prepositional Phrases page as well.  So for the Phrase above, you could also find it under “Prepositional Phrases – Down” in the menu above.

I hope that these pages will help you to comprehend what the hell people are talking about when they use Prepositional Phrasal-Adjectives & Adjectival Phrases in their speech.
