– single words: at, from, in, below, during, among, etc. (simple prepositions – there are approximately 70 of these in English);

– two or more words: according to, because of, apart from, on account of, due to, in spite of, instead of, next to, contrary to, etc. (composite/phrasal prepositions).

There are also compound prepositions (within, outside, throughout) and derived prepositions (depending, considering, including).
