What are Place Adverbs?

Place adverbs show the place where the action is happening or directed towards. In order to find a place adverb in a sentence, we ask the question “nereye” meaning “where”. Unlike manner adverbs, we use place adverbs without suffixes. If a place adverb gets any suffix, it turns into a noun.

 

Here is a list of Place Adverbs:

İçeriInside
DışarıOutside
YukarıUp / Upward
AşağıDown / Downward
SağRight
SolLeft
İleriForward
GeriBackwards
KarşıOpposite
DoğruTowards

 

Let’s see some sentence examples:

 

  • Tarkan aşağı atladı. (Tarkan jumped down)
  • Lütfen biraz daha geri git. (Please go backwards a little more)

 

Movement or Direction Adverbs

You can also use the dative, locative, and the ablative suffixes to show where the location is at or the movement is from:

 

  • Işıklardan karşıya geç ve sağa dön. (Walk across the lights and turn right)
  • Dışarıda bekleme, içeriye gel. (Don’t wait outside, come inside)
  • Selin çok geriden geliyor. (Selin is coming from way backward)
