Welcome to the forum, nando. :hi:

Can you give an example of a sentence ending in 'left' or 'right' that you don't understand?

I don't know, for example

I have seen it, in many sentences !!!

"There's a little whisky left." = 'There is a little whisky remaining (in the glass, bottle, etc)".

This has nothing at all to do with the left of left/right.
