    Post Turn On backside

    When an object is "turned on the backside", does it mean its frontside or backside is facing the speaker?

    Re: Turn On backside

    Welcome to the forum sesod.

    'Turn on the backside' is not natural English. We normally turn things over if we want to see the other side.
