    Welcome to the forum, nando.

    Can you give an example of a sentence ending in 'left' or 'right' that you don't understand?

    thanks

    I don't know, for example

    "There's a little whisky left."

    I have seen it, in many sentences !!!
    (also right)

    Re: Question about left and right

    "There's a little whisky left." = 'There is a little whisky remaining (in the glass, bottle, etc)".

    This has nothing at all to do with the left of left/right.
