Is it a correct sentence if I say

He yelled at me out of nowhere?

The intention is to convey that someone started yelling at me suddenly and there didn't seem to be anything understandable in the current situation which would justify yelling. Is this word nowhere correct to use or is there a better way to convey the same?

  • Yes. If that's the meaning, then that's how many would say it. Another way would be to say, "He yelled at me out of the blue." Jul 5, 2021 at 20:30
