"The boy sleeps there, from where the pretty girl runs away."
Translation:Ott alszik a fiú, ahonnan elfut a csinos lány.
szép means beautiful, csinos means pretty
different words, different meanings
What does it mean that the boy is sleeping "from" a place? Wouldn't "ahol" be used here since sleeping is stationary?
The boy is sleeping "ott" -- not moving. "ahonnan" refers to the referenced position of the girl, and she is moving (from there to somewhere else). In other words: the boy is sleeping where the girl was before.
Oh my god thank you this lesson was making me feel like a crazy person. Like I can at least imagine how you eat "from" a place (from a bowl, or from a taco truck) but okay, that actually paints a picture.
Probably the better English translation would be "The boy is sleeping there, at the place the pretty girl is running away from." Still clunky but at least communicates the idea.
Did he do something that made her want to run away? Then just fell asleep; the cad!
