Yes, exactly, I mean a grammatical object. It works like this:
[subject] går nedför [object]
So nedför is the direction - "down" or "downwards". The subject is whatever is moving downwards, and the object is that, which is being travelled - like a set of stairs, for instance.
So as you can see, nedför is a direction, and it requires the (grammatical) object being travelled.
In contrast, ned från is also directional, but it requires the origin of the travel rather than the object being travelled.
Could you please elaborate on the concept of "object". Did you mean grammatical object? I am sorry. I am confused. Also, in the examples "gå nedför trappan" and "tårarna rinner nedför hans kinder" can one regard the origin as the top of the stairs and the eyes? I would appreciate your help.
