16. Portuguese Prepositions
The most common prepositions in Portuguese are:
|a||at||ao lado de||beside|
|com||with||ao redor de||around|
|de||of, from||longe de||far from|
|em||in, on||em frente a||in front of|
|entre||between, among||em baixo de||below, under|
|cerca de||towards, about||em frente de||opposite|
|para||for, in order, by||atrás de||behind|
|por||for, through, along, via||em cima de||above|
|sobre||on, over||até||till, until|
The word after the prepositions em and de sometimes needs to have the article, so you combine the two words.
em + o = no - em + a = na - em + um = num - em + uma = numa
de + o = do - de + a = da - de + um = dum - de + uma = duma
a + o = ao - a + a = à
