Adverbs of place (avverbi di luogo) express the physical or figurative location of the action.
Here are the most common adverbs of place.
|Intorno||Around (movement: introduced by motion verbs like Camminare, Walk)|
|Intorno||Around (position: fixed in a determined place)|
|Di fronte||In front ot|
|Davanti||In front of/facing|
|Accanto||Next to/Close to|
|A sinistra||On the left|
|A destra||On the right|
Remember the differences in usage of these pronouns: Qui/Qua mean "Here" and Lì/là mean "There".
Remember! Qui/Qua could be used interchangeably, such as Lì/Là.
Take a look at some useful indefinite adverbs of place.
|Da qualche parte||Somewhere|
|Da nessuna parte||Nowhere|
An adverbial phrase is a construction of two or more words that act as an adverb.
Let's see some examples with adverbs of place.
|Qui sopra||Up here|
|Qui sotto||Down here|
|Qui vicino||Here, close|
|Lì sopra||Up there|
|Lì in cima||On top, over there|
|Lì in fondo||On the back, over there|
Qua (Here) and Là (There) could merge with Su (Up) and Giù (Down).
As a consequence, the first consonant of Su or Giù is doubled.
Also, the stress of the word moves to the very last vowel.
