Not sure how to spell a word? Hesitate no longer.

Below or Beneath ?

Your choice!


Exemple : ‘’There are still millions of people who live below the poverty line.’’

People are often unsure regarding the difference between the prepositions "below" and "beneath." "Below" is a less formal word and is used mainly when something is not directly or literally below something.


Exemple : ‘’I sat beneath the tree and ready my book.’’

"Beneath" as a similar meaning but is mainly used in literary works as it is much higher in register.
