A postposition is the equivalent of a preposition in languages where the preposition appears after the noun (such as Japanese). Here are some examples:

Finnish: talon edessä in front of the house, talon takana behind the house
Hungarian: kutya nélkül dog without
Japanese: doko ni where at, doko e where to
Korean: Hanguk e to Korea

English has one postposition: ago.
