Can it be "I'm walking across your house" ? I'm not a native english speaker.
In English, "walking across" something typically means walking on top of it; you would "walk across a bridge" or "walk across the road". It would be a very unusual situation for someone to walk across a house (just how drunk are they?!), and you'd probably say instead that you "walked over it" or "walked on top of it". That would be "idę nad twój dom", I think?
Hmm, in such unusual situation, I'd probably say „Idę po twoim dachu”. (since „po domu”, especially with the verb „chodzę” instead, would be walking around the house, as in inside of it in various directions).
That would mean that you're passing next to it, not through it, right? "Przechodzę/Idę obok twojego domu".
How is przez "because" and "through?" They seem like very different words to me. Is there a more literal translation of "To przez cie" that would help me understand?
It has to be "przez ciebie", using the emphatic version of the pronoun. "przez cię" just sounds totally strange to me.
Well, in every language you can observe the same preposition being used in totally different situations, Polish is no different.
"To przez ciebie" is mostly "It's your fault", if you want to say something positive it's rather "To dzięki tobie" (Dative) = It's thanks to you.
to be going, to be walking = iść (ja idę)
to go, to walk = chodzić (ja chodzę)
to be walking (without a purpose nor direction) = chodzić
So, it doesn't fit.
When should you use conjugations of 'iść' and when should you use 'chodzić'?
"iść" happens right now (to be walking, to be going on foot), "chodzić" is general (to walk, to go on foot). So basically, Present Continuous vs Present Simple. Granted, so far you learned that PC/PS are the same in Polish, but Verbs of Motion are an exception.
An exception from this PC/PS distinction is where you are just 'walking around', without any purpose nor direction, then it's "chodzić" despite being Present Continuous.
Just a thought...would you please accept "thru" as correct? It is a word, means "through" but it is an informal spelling of through.
