# Word for the Day

An old-fashioned way to say, “Over there.”




Yonder is an old-fashioned way to say, “Over there.” When your sister asks where you parked the car, you might jokingly reply, “Yonder, by the fire hydrant.”


Some dialects in various parts of the United States still use the word yonder, usually to specify something that’s within sight, and often with accompanied by a gesture pointing toward it. You could say, “My dog’s yonder in the corn field,” or “I saw Billy yonder, on the tire swing.” The phrase “wild blue yonder” was first used to refer to the sky in the 1939 U.S. Air Force song.
