One complication to the simplicity of pointing may be the demand for directional accuracy. People in many different societies, are reported to keep careful track of cardinal directions, recorded in locational expressions in speech. The linguistic details vary, but frequently people use lexical roots for cardinal directions to describe things and events as points or vectors in the appropriate divisions of the horizontal plane.

Take the truth and move it in a different direction.
