Place adverb

From Teflpedia

An adverb of place is an adverb that refers to place; they are single-word place adverbials.

Common adverbs include "here", "there"; these are locative adverbs.

These are often compounds of a preposition and a noun, particularly "in"/"out", "up"/"down", "over"/"under", giving e.g. "indoors", "outdoors", "inside", "outside", "overground", "underground" (wombling free), "upstairs", "downstairs", "downtown", "uptown", etc.

In traditional grammar, single-word prepositions of place are often identified as adverbs - prepositional adverbs. However, modern grammar tends to analyse them as single-word prepositions.

There may not be a complete distinction between an adverb of place and a adverb of movement.
