    right, left

    Hi,

    I am confused about one thing. I would like to ask which one is OK for you.

    Look at the left or look left.

    Go to the left
    or go left.

    Turn to the right
    or turn right.

    Thanks....

    Look at the left or look left. "Look at the left" is unnatural.

    Go to the left
    or go left. Both are fine and can mean slightly different things.

    Turn to the right
    or turn right. Both are fine, but mean slightly different things.

    Thanks. (one full stop is sufficient)
    See above. As always, context is important. If you could use the various versions in some sentences for us, it will be much easier for us to tell which, if any, is appropriate.
