I have two questions to ask:
She was trespassing in my special place.
In my dictionary "trespass" should be used with "on". Could you please explain if it is correct to use "in" here?
I live over the hill.
Can I replace over with "beyond"?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
I would rather say, "she was trespassing into my special place." I think this implies that she came into an area, but of course, once she was there, she was in it, from that point on she was trespassing in my special place.
The sentence is passive, something you can identify usually by an -ing verb (trespassing). Where possible, if you can re-write a passive sentence, you'll have a more interesting, active, picture, and it usually is easier to find the right word.
She tresspassed into my special place. Or, even she trespassed on my special place. The first, is she entered your "zone" - the second is walked around on your turf.
