I was looking at the questions list and realized one hot question on the right-sidebar's list that I had never seen before, it was talking about the phrasal verb 'Scoot over' which means
To move in order to give some space so that someone else can sit
However, how is this verb used? Is there a past form? Can I specify an exact side where I want the person to go? Like: "Scoot over a little bit to the left so I can sit"
Also, as I looked up this phrasal verb's meaning in internet, I saw this definition:
Move to the side, especially to make room. For example, If you scoot over a little I'll have room to sit.
I can understand that "room" is working as "space", is it working exactly as "space"?
I also found this definition:
To move or slide something to the side: Scoot your chair over so we can talk
What does "scoot the chair over" mean? Does it mean the same as above but instead of moving a body, moving the chair in order to give space?
Is there a past form of Scoot? Like: He scooted over so I could sit.
