"Lép" means only one (1) step and my shoes won't get wet if "åtlépek" and not "àtgázolok" (cross a shallow river walking in the water). Átkelek, átmegyek - some more synonyms for crossing the river (by boat or through the bridge). The hidden meaning in Átlépek a folyón is that the river is too narrow.
Does folyo cover all river like bodies of water as well, or does hungarian have another word (equivalent to creek or stream) that is more like something you can step over? Cause i feel like a river is too big to just step over. Something that small would be called a creek, brook, stream, or something similar.
