    homewards

    This afternoon holding a conversation in English, suddenly a word (learned time ago) came to my mind : "homewards", "pubwards" meaning leading that direction (mainly used in British English). Do English speakers use it frequently nowadays?

    Thank you

    'Homewards' is used occasionally, as in the Simon and Garfunkel song 'Homewards Bound.'
    However, I have never heard it before as in 'pubwards.'
    If you want to learn some more useful British vocabulary, I recommend 'Phrasal Verbs in Britain.'
    There are plenty of more 'modern' spoken terms that are useful in British English plus you can listen to them in use. I hope this helps.
