    "look out over" meaning

    Could you please explain what does this phrase exactly mean ? Does this have a meaning just similar to "looking at or toward something" ?

    1."From my room I look out over the surrounding countryside"
    2."Lanre leading the way, they came to a high place in the mountains where they could look out over the land"
    3."You can go inside for a small fee and walk up a tiny, curved staircase to look out over the square"
    4."Where there are windows, the delivery of light and vista, looking out over the expanse of Lake Michigan to an infinite horizon, is magnificent"

    Well it has nothing to do with being unhappy. People might have various opinions about the same topic . That's what my case exactly is. They couldn't reach any sort of consensus on this subject ,so it seems kinda dicey to decide precisely on anything . Therefore, I had to involve a few more opinions into that subject until I clear it up for myself. I'd be happy if you take your time sharing your thoughts.

    I have nothing useful to add to the number of sound responses you have already received at WR (link in post 2) and EF.

    In addition to Piscean's comments, I would like to add that we really appreciate it if users tell us (in post #1) if they have already posted the same question on other forums, tell us what responses they got, and explain why they are seeking more responses.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: "look out over" meaning

    Off topic, but perhaps useful for those members who don't know: we have nothing against other forums. Indeed, several of us are members of other forums. One of the current UE mods is, and another has been, a mod in another forum. I am still a member of five other forums.

    This is why we find it frustrating when members post a question in more than one forum without telling us. I have on occasion spent some time here at UE giving a detailed response to a question, and then gone to one of my other forums to find that it has already been satisfactorily answered there. So, if you feel you have a reason to submit a question to more than one forum, fine; but please tell us so that we don't waste our time duplicating work that has already been done..
