Ellipsed Objects of Prepositions (#2)
Based on
Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell


     Some prepositions function as adverbs when their object has been ellipsed (left out). 

1. Any hare they can find will do for the dogs and men to run after.

2. James brought Merrylegs in and put on his halter.

3. All that could be piled up inside on the front seat were put in.

4.  I have never snapped at him since, and I won't either.

5. They got on the halter and the bar into my mouth; then one dragged 

me along by the halter, another flogging behind.
