    over the cliff

    The car went out of control and plunged over the cliff.

    What does the preposition `over' mean here?

    Please help me.

    The car went over the edge of the cliff.

    If you spill a glass of water on your table and it pours onto the floor, the water went over the edge of the table.

    Re: over the cliff

    Thank you Anglika. I got it.

    Similarly can I say the sentence like the followings :

    Yesterday my book went/fell over the edge of the table.
    I am sure one day she is going to be plunged over the edge of the terrace.

    Are the sentences correct?
    By the second sentence, I meant, One day I am going to push over her from the edge of the terrace.
    Please help me.
