Here and There

The suffix -re -ra means place or place of.
nerede?where?
[LIT: ne-re-de “what-place-at”]

Similarly the Turkish demonstratives:
bu şu o this, that, that (yonder)
are suffixed with -ra “place of” to form the basic spatials:

bura here
[LIT: this place]
şura there
[LIT: that place]
ora that yonder
[LIT: that place over there]
These words are seldom used in this pure form. They are suffixed to show where, from, to, towards.

Forming Turkish Extended Spatials

Turkish Spatials – Static Position

Static Position Suffix: [locative] -de/-da in, on, at forms basic location.

Turkish singular specific place:

[LIT: bu-ra-da “this-place-at”]

The plural is spatially more vague:
buralarda hereabouts, around here
şuralarda thereabouts, around there
oralarda thereabouts over there, around about over there
nerelerde? whereabouts?

Turkish Spatials – Movement Away

Adding the Movement Away Suffix [ablative] -dan / -den from →
buradan from here
şuradan from there
oradan from there
nereden? where from?
The plural is spatially more vague
buralardan from hereabouts, from around here
şuralardan from thereabouts
oralardan from thereabouts (distant)
nerelerden? from whereabouts?

Turkish Spatials – Movement Toward

Adding the Movement Toward suffix [dative] -a/-e to, towards ⇒

şuraya to there
oraya to there
nereye? where to?
The plural is spatially more vague
