'abroad' Jillian Adams and Melania Pantelich12 Aug. 201612 Oct. 2016


Abroad once conjured a feeling of returning to one's homeland, or in the case of post-war Australians, to the mother country. It was also synonymous with a distant journey or place, overseas in a foreign land. Today the expression 'travelling abroad' conjures up notions of travel and adventure in the past. The modern use of the word is more likely to be something fixed, or the undertaking of a meaningful activity, such as volunteering abroad or studying abroad. Abroad is also used in the context of charitable organisations such as Community Aid Abroad, Work Abroad and Projects Abroad. Rumours too can be 'abroad' as they too travel widely, in and out in the open and in circulation. The modern sense of the word 'abroad' - out of one's country or overseas - derives from its late fourteenth century meaning: out of doors or away from home. 'Abroad' comes from the Old English word 'on brede' meaning at wide.
