When do you say "egy lany van itt" and when do you say "egy lany itt van", if it actually matters which you say?

What is the difference between 'ide' and 'itt'?

I think "itt" means "here", as in place, and "ide" is "to here", as in direction.

Like Russian "здесь" vs "сюда", or Esperanto "ĉi tie" vs "ĉi tien".

Think of it like this:

  • ide -- hither (to/towards here)
  • itt -- here
  • innen -- hence (from here)

  • oda -- thither (to/towards there)

  • ott -- there
  • onnan -- thence (from there)
