Abstract: This article aims to explore how and to what extent prepositions are left out in time adverbials in present-day spoken AmE. On the whole, on, at, for, in, and during are dropped before time adverbials, and of those prepositions on and for are omitted most frequently in informal styles. For tends to be dropped when it is used with continuity verbs. In present-day informal AmE, prepositions are omitted in time expressions to a considerable degree. In this article, the way and the extent to which prepositions are omitted in time adverbials are discussed based on a large number of examples.
