Prepositional Phrases

Some English grammar teachers teach that preposition phrases in the object 
are part of the object, though neither a direct object nor an indirect 
object.  However, I and the same teachers I know of admit that preposition 
phrases in English sentences may occur in other positions.  Many are at the 
"head" of the sentence; these are quite often time adverbials.

While a locative in an English sentence may occur before the verb (predicate 
proper), my teachers still held that it is part of the predicate (body).
