Hither

Hi,
What does “turn hither” mean?
Lots of thanks,
Morteza

“turn to face this way.” It may also include the direction to walk to you, depending on context.
‘hither’ is an old fashioned term which means the place where you are.

Good morning Bev and Morteza. I replied to this earlier but failed to “post” it. :slight_smile:

Hither and Tither was often used in the past, but rarely heard at all nowadays. It meant, here and there, so Bev’s explanation is absolutely correct.

Hither and thither means here and there, and implies many different directions.

I’m posting hither and thither all over these forums. :slight_smile:

(Was ‘tither’ a typo, Bill, or is that another variation?)

Thank you, my dear & knowledgeable friends !
