Spanish Prepositions are 'Where?' or 'When?' words, which give information about where something is or when something happens. They are usually placed before a noun and their role is to link the noun with the rest of the sentence.
El libro está sobre la mesa.The book is on the table.
Estoy a lado de la escuela.I am beside the school.
The Spanish Preposition for above, over or on is sobre....

....imagine that above the people in the courtroom is a very SOBER judge.
