  1. Jūratė:

    Aren’t they called postpositions?

    • Nitin Kumar:

      @Jūratė At last, someone noticed the important difference.
      Yes, you are right. They must be postpositions in Hindi as they always come after noun or pronoun. I wrote from the English learner prospective and thus, positioned its topic as the prepositions. But I think, I must the topic to postposition as well. Thanks for the notice!
