NOW Meaning and Definition

Now is an adverb that refers to the current moment or point in time. It signifies the period of time that is immediately present or the immediate situation. It denotes the present state or time frame and is often used to emphasize immediacy, signaling that an action or event is happening or expected to happen immediately or without delay.

In its temporal sense, "now" typically indicates the precise time of speaking or writing, capturing a specific moment in a continuous sequence of time. It implies a particular current state or situation, highlighting its relevance to the context being discussed. Moreover, "now" can also be used to express a change from a previous state or to introduce a new course of action or development.

In addition to conveying time, "now" can also carry the meaning of "at the moment" or "at this point in time," suggesting that something is happening or is true in the present. Its usage can convey a sense of urgency, prompting immediate attention or action. Furthermore, "now" can function as a transitional adverb, connecting ideas or events and signaling a shift from one topic or activity to another.

Overall, "now" serves as a powerful linguistic tool to pinpoint the current moment, emphasize immediacy, introduce new information or actions, and facilitate coherent transitions in speech or writing.
