Difference Between Instead and Instead of
As a preposition instead is never used alone. It is always used with of.
When a verb comes after instead of, it has to be a gerund (-ing form), and not an infinitive.
Instead of does not mean the same as without. We use instead of when one person or thing replaces another. We use without when one person or thing is not together with another.
Instead without of is an adverb. It usually comes at the beginning or end of a clause.
