In Oxford Dictionary it has been shown that the word out can be used to mean situated far or at a particular distance from somewhere. It uses three phrases as example to explain this meaning. These three phrases are:
- an old farmhouse right out in the middle of nowhere.
- they lived eight miles out of town.
- a cold front hundreds of miles out in the Atlantic.
I cannot understand the meaning of these phrase. Please help me.
One may think that I should make three different posts for these three phrases. I also thought to do it at first. But when I saw that these three phrases contain a common word out, and they are examples of a common usage of out to mean same kind of meaning, I have made only one thread.
