Both those words have several meanings depending on context.Hi teacher
Sorry i have a long question , my English teacher asked us a question , he said what is the difference between ' above ' and ' over ' ?
One of my classmate answered like this he said : " When something takes place on something else with no touching we use " above " . For example : Today was rainy but i didn't get wet because the umbrella was "above " my head . In other side when something takes place on something else , so that two thing are touching each other , we use " over " . For example : My ADSL modem is " over " the case of computer . For sure there are some other differences between these two prepositions . The word "over" is also used in lots of other meanings for example we use over in a situation that we want to mention something behind something else e.g the village is over this mountain ."
So i said if we use these words as a prepositions " Over " is above or higher than something, without touching itbut "Above " is in a higher position than something else.
He told me " you're answer is completely wrong " and i told him we want to find a difference as a preposition but i think you checked the adverb but he said again " i am sure my answer is right " so i checked some advanced dictionary and i found a lot of meaning for both but i think his answer is not right .
Please tell me which answers are true mine or him ???
