A complex preposition is a word group (such as "along with" or "on account of") that functions like an ordinary one-word preposition. Complex prepositions can be divided into two groups: 1. two-word units (a word + a simple preposition), such as apart from (also known as compound prepositions) 2. three-word units (a simple preposition + a noun + a simple preposition), such as by means of (also known as phrasal prepositions)
