I wonder if my knowledge is right regarding the following phrases being prepositions:

i) over here

ii) over there

Both having the same construction= over (preposition) + here/there (adverb)

Perhaps, I'm wrong about this.


That preposition has many uses, one given by Lexico is this:


4.2 At the other side of; beyond.
over the hill is a small village

You can call out

I am over here!

to someone who is looking for you, and

The bus stop is over there.

to indicate where you wait for a bus.

  • Thus, over there/here = prepositional phrase?
