Adverbs Of Place Using and Examples
Adverbs Of Place Using and Examples
In this lesson, we will examine the topic ‘adverbs of place using and examples’. Ground envelopes give us information about where something happened. They usually come after the basic verb or after the clause they describe. They do not characterize envelopes, adjectives or other adverbs.
- Samara looked around but she couldn’t see the cat.
- You searched everywhere you could think of.
- I am going back to cinema.
- Come in!
- Built We built a house nearby.
- Tomas took the child outside.
There and Here
‘There’ and ‘here’ are commonly used ground direction envelopes. They indicate a location attached to the speaker. When used with action verbs, ‘here’ means towards the speaker or with the speaker, and ‘there’ means not away from the speaker or with the speaker. For example:
- Come here! (Meaning: Come towards me.)
- The window is in here. (Meaning: Come with me; we will go and see together)
- Put ball there. ( Meaning: Put it away from me.)
- The pen is in there. (Meaning: Go there; you can see for yourself.)
‘There’ and ‘here’ are combined with prepositions to form many common adverbial expressions. For example:
- What are you doing in here?
- Come over here and look at the picture.
- The chil is hiding down there under the window.
- You wonder how your driver’s license got stuck under here.
‘There’ and ‘here’ are used at the beginning of a sentence with exclamation or when emphasis is required. Subject is a verb, followed by a pronoun, if the subject is a pronoun. For example:
- Here comes the taxi!
- There goes the neighborhood
- There it is!
- Here they are!
Adverbs Of Place That are Also Prepositions
Most place direction envelopes can also be used as prepositions. When they are used as prepositions, a name must come after them. For example:
- You are wearing a necklace around your neck. (Use as prepositions)
- The ball rolled around in your hand. (Use as a place envelope describing a verb)
- I think I will hang the jersey over my window. (Use as prepositions)
- Tomas turned over and went back to run. (Use as a place envelope describing a verb)
Adverbs Of Place Ending With -Where
Location-direction envelopes ending in ‘-where’ express the idea of a location without specifying a specific location or direction. For example:
- You would like to go nowhere warm for your vacation.
- Is there a place anywhere I can find a delicious plate of salad?
- You have somewhere to go.
- You keep swimming in to Tim everywhere!
Adverbs Of Place Ending with -Wards
Place envelopes ending in -wards represent movement in a certain direction. For example:
- Dogs don’t usually walk backwards.
- The bus is moving westwards.
- The ship drifted upwards.
- They will keep running homewards until they arrive.
Note: Towards are not an envelope, but an pronoun. That is why a name or pronoun always follows. For example:
- Bellica, walked towards the bike.
- Timmy, ran towards you.
Adverbs Of Place That Indicate Both Motion and Position
Some location-direction envelopes can specify both motion and location simultaneously. For example:
- Tomas worked and lived abroad.
- The rain pushed us to the sideways.
- The baby went indoors.
- Milk always flowers downhill.
- I will not come to London after that.
- They will come as a family tomorrow.
- She will finish school next year.
