Adverbial phrases (expressions with adverbs)
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.
