Here - there - where
From Hull AWE
Words that mean ‘a place’ (here, there, everywhere, etc.) are all formed like here.
- If you mean ‘in this place’, say here. (But note: you hear with your ears.)
- If you mean ‘in that place’, use there (th + (h)ere).
- If you mean ‘which place’, use where (wh + (h)ere).
