But imagine the creature isn't one that walks by crawling... a goat would not crawl up a mountain, it would climb up it. I climb a ladder, and that is not on my hands and knees. The English dictionary says: Crawl - Move forward on the hands and knees or by dragging the body close to the ground. Climb - Go or come up a (slope or staircase); ascend They seem pretty different to me! This makes me ask the question: is the use of this word in Hungarian different to my understanding of it in English?
