Place adverbial

From Teflpedia

A place adverbial or adverbial of place is an adverbial that refers to place.[1]

Most adverbials of place are prepositional phrase adverbials, i.e. a prepositional phrase with a preposition of place, such as "on the table" in "She put the book on the table". But speakers also use place adverbs, e.g. "overseas", "here", "there", etc.

Place adverbials give direction about location, direction and distance. They can therefore be subdivided into location adverbials, direction adverbials and distance adverbials.
