Spanish Adverb: Abajo, bajo

Spanish Adverb: Abajo, bajo

Pronunciation: Ah-bah-joh

Translation: Below, under

Function: Adverb

‘Hacia un lugar inferior’ [toward a place below] is what ‘Abajo’ means -when paired with movement verbs, as in: ‘nadó aguas abajo’ [swam downstream]. If the associated verb doesn’t mean movement, then it has a sense of a place below: “Está allá abajo’ [he is below]

Without the ever important “movement” prefix ‘a’, ‘bajo’ can function as the “down” adverb: ‘a un volumen bajo’ [at a lower volume]. When it appears after a noun, it means in the lowest part: ‘río abajo’ [down river]

Example:

Voy abajo

Translation:

I am going below
