PLACE CLAUSE EXPRESSİONS : where, wherever, anywhere, somewhere,        everywhere Examples People want to live where their children will get a good education. Where I come from, it rains almost every day. Everywhere that Mary went, her pet lamb followed. Wherever I sit, the sun is in my eyes. I lost my purse somewhere I sat. You may sit anywhere you want. As seen above, a place clause can be used before or after the main clause. Place clauses begin with where, wherever, everywhere, anywhere or somewhere. We use where to express a definite place. A place clause beginning with everywhere or wherever doesn’t express a definite place. Wherever usually emphasises the place expression. Study the use of the place clause in bold in the passage.


What’s freedom?

Your freedom is something you don’t usually think about very much unless it is being restricted for sme reason or other. But imagine being in prison. If you’ve been locked up ‘inside’ you can no longer go where you want, when you want. Perhaps you didn’t feel so very free when you used to have struggle back from the bazaar with the shopping or when you felt obliged to make that long bus journey to visit your grandmother but you will see things differently now because suddenly you can’t go anywhere at all that you might like to. It is likely that you can’t even g oto the bathroom at your own convenience. All you will be able to think about now are all the places you would like to visit – the bazaar, your grandmother, for example. Probably you would be quite satisfied just to be able to go somewhere we can. Everywhere in the world outside you know that there are people travelling around to wherever they want to go while you are stuck in your cell.

(in   your own words.) Exercise 2 . Fill in the blanks with where, wherever, everywhere, or                         somewhere to make place clauses.
