One of the most important geographic words in the Book of Mormon is “northward.” It is used 47 times. It is sometimes used as a direction and thus in each instance one must look for the referent in order to know what it means. Most often it is used as a noun referring to a specific place. However, does it always refer to the same location? And does the term “land northward” mean the same as “on the northward” or “northward” or “in the northward or "northernmost?” This article will attempt to answer these questions.
