Adverbs of CERTAIN TIME: Eylemin zamanını belirtirler. Sorusu When?

NOTE 5: prep+noun yapısıyla oluşmuş pek çok zarf hem yer (location) hem de yön-hareket (movement) belirttiklerinden başlarına yön (to, towards etc) veya yer (at, in, on) prepositionları almazlar. ‘Home’ da önüne to almaz: ahead, abroad, overseas, uphill, downhill, sideways, indoors, outdoors
