I imagine you are talking about the preposition in English, downward which means the same as down, or in the direction
of down, or in a downward direction, the opposite is upward, which means in the direction of up.
English has a lot of prepostions that can be quite confusing if not understood, and used.
For example under or underneath, not many people use underneath.Or below and beneath, which has the same tendancy.
sideways, is another, from side to side yet another.
These are called action prepositions, or prepositions of moment, there are also prepositions of time, and prepositions of place. The rules of how and when to use them can be very confusing to second language speakers.
