    I will argue with it. When one looks at "the people there", "there" answers the question "which people" more than "where", in my opinion.

    That difference also occurs here.

    The man is sitting in the car. (in the car - adverbial phrase - where?)
    The man in the car is smoking. (in the car - adjectival phrase - which man?)

    :wink:
