An adpositional phrase is a phrase consisting of a head adposition and its complement (generally a noun phrase).


Since most languages have either only prepositions or only postpositions, the subtype terms prepositional phrase and postpositional phrase are more common. Since PP is used as an abbreviation for both of these, it is also used as an abbreviation for adpositional phrase (and of course AP is already taken, as an abbreviation of adjective phrase).
