I'm staring at a computer screen, looking at the edges of the glass. I want to say:
"I looked around the edges and the screen looked fine to me."
Is it correct? The phrase, "looked around the edges", I mean? Or should I say:
"I looked along the edges and the screen looked fine."
And is there a difference between the two? If so, what is the difference?
Another example would be if I have a book, and I ask someone to find a particular word on a particular page, and I gave them a hint:
"Look along the edge and you will find it."
Should I say:
"Look around the edge you will find it."
I think 'look along' sounds correct to me in this context (correct me if I am wrong). But 'look around' sounds correct to me in my first example sentence.
I'm trying to understand the subtle differences between the two: look around Vs look along.
