prepositions

prepositions

A JSON array of one-word, english prepositions

Usage

var prepositions = require('prepositions');
console.dir(prepositions);

yields

[
  "a",
  "abaft",
  "aboard",
  "about",
  "above",
  "absent",
  ...
]

How was this list generated?

In the Makefile you'll see a line like this:

./getprepositions.sh | ./stringify.js > $(FILE)

The first command scrapes wikipedia for the list, and outputs the results separated by newlines. The second command creates the JSON array and outputs it to stdout, which then gets redirected into prepositions.json

Installation

npm install prepositions
