Yonder I recently came into this word while reading, so I wrote it down to check it out online later. Is the word used regularly? If yes, can you tell me some examples?

"What light from yonder window breaks". This word appears in (old) poetry and in the odd stock phrase like "the wide blue yonder". It might still be in use in some rural US dialects, but I might just be recalling Walter Brennan using it in a 40s thriller. An antique.

Occasionally, you can hear older people say things like "up yonder" and "down yonder" to refer to places. The meaning is "over there and high up/low down".
