What are east west north and south called?

Answer

East, west, north, and south are commonly referred to as the cardinal directions. In all cultures and languages across the world, there is some type of word or reference for each of the cardinal directions. Further, there are intermediate points between each of the four cardinal directions to form the points of a compass. These intermediate points are northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest. If you are facing north then east will be on your right, west on your left, and south behind you. This is an easy trick to remembering the location of the four cardinal directions.
