THROUGHOUT: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had a pleasant weekend. One of our readers, Vicky C., has asked us to define the word throughout: Today's word is: throughout (pronunciation --> thru-OUT) Meaning 1: something that happens or exists in every part of a place. Example 1: There were demonstrations (manifestaciones) against the war throughout the country. Example 2 Alex is an art collector. He has hung beautiful paintings throughout his house. Meaning 2: something that happens during all of a period of time or an event. Example 3: He slept throughout the meeting. He was either very tired or the meeting was very boring! Example 4 My grandmother has had many interesting experiences throughout her life. I hope that answers your question, Vicky. If you have any questions about today's word, please don't hesitate to contact us. Have a nice day!
