    I walked every corner of the home.

    Hi,

    Is "I spent the whole day at home, so I walked every corner of the home" correct?

    Re: I walked every corner of the home.

    I suppose it could be. What are you trying to say? That you walked everywhere inside the house?

    Re: I walked every corner of the home.

    I think it has the general meaning of mulling around the house all day.

    Why don't we wait for Untaught to tell us?

    I think a house is too small for this expression. One might say he walked every corner of the neighborhood looking for his lost dog.

    Some homes are very large.

    Re: I walked every corner of the home.

    This is what I was trying to say: I walked everywhere inside the house. But is my sentence incorrect or unnatural?

    Re: I walked every corner of the home.

    I don't have a problem with your original but I would change the last word to "house", not "home".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I walked every corner of the home.

    Can you please tell me why you would use "house" in place of "home"?
