and then I would let the clever ones learn Latin as an honour, and Greek as a treat." --Sir Winston Churchill

In Latin, a proposition is also used before a noun to show its relation to another word in the sentence. Usually the relation shown is position, direction or time. The Latin preposition in, followed by a noun in the Ablative Case, expresses place where or location. The Ablative case endings for a noun in the First Declension are:
Singular: a and Plural: is.
Example: Nauta in insula est...The sailor is on the island.
Express in Latin:
- in Greece
- in the provinces
- in the water
- on the land
