Thank you for your help. Did you have a good weekend? I have some more questions.

1. Take time and look upward at night.
2. ___________ and look upward at night.
(What other similar expressions can we use in the blank?)

3. Point your foot backward.
4. _______ your foot backward.
(What other similar expressions can we use in the blank?)

5. Don't go back.
6. Don't go backward.
(Are both the same in meaning?)

  1. "Take a moment to look upward at night." "Stop and look upward..,"

    #4 - I can't think of another way to say it, but there probably are some.

    5 & 6, yes, both mean the same. The way I would use the words "back" and "backward" might mean something different, though. To go back might mean to return to a geographical place as well as to return to old ideas. "You were robbed in that hotel. Don't go back there!"

    To go backward would mean less a geographical place than in ways of thinking or ideas. "Women were once prevented from having a voice in public affairs. Don't go backward and exclude women again."
