“A particular position or point in space” (Lexico, Oxford).
I found this definition interesting because it contrasts with Cresswell’s take on place. Cresswell says, “places are locations with meaning” (113).
Places have names, memories, and feelings. They are accumulations of human experiences, as opposed to a number or coordinate, which is more what the Lexico definition gets at.
From Tim Cresswell, “Humanistic Geographies” in Geographic Thought, (Wiley-Blackwell: 2012).
