    Post dimension the world over or dimension "in" the world over.

    Dear teachers,

    Should I still have to put "in" between the word "dimension" and thye article "the"?

    The impact of globalization has been uneven and responses to it are varied in terms of its positive and negative dimensions __ the world over.

    Thanks in advance...

    ".....the world over" is the usual expression. Never heard/read the expression with "in".

    Maybe you're thinking of the expressions 'in all the world' or 'in the whole world'.
