    The terms location and place in geography are used to notice and or identify a point or an area on the Earth's surface or elsewhere. The term 'location' generally implies a higher degree of certainty than "place" which often has an ambiguous boundary relying more on human/social attributes of place identity and sense of place than on geometry.

Examples of location in a Sentence

  1. Maamoun Abdulkarim:

    We are waiting for details on the truth of what occurred, the exact location inside the temple, and the size of the destruction.

  2. Chris McGoey:

    Airbnb private rentals are different and more relaxed than staying in an established-branded hotel. I guess that’s the allure and the fact that you can sometimes find a fabulous deal in a great location. But this story points out that making private arrangements can be hit and miss because of lack of oversight, quality control, and compliance with regulations designed to protect guests, in a hotel we take things for granted like a local direct-dial phone, an on-duty operator, and desk staff.

  3. Keith Nowak:

    Like a lot of travel, your deals will be based on location, season and popularity.

  4. Corey Lewandowski:

    New Hampshire should have been won last time, except we had a lot of people come in at the last moment, which was a rather strange situation -- thousands and thousands of people coming in from locations unknown, but I knew where their location was.

  5. Curt Levey:

And that’s where it gets dangerous. They will want to know your state of mind or whether you met with some co-conspirators, they will want as broad a record of your location as they can find.
