How can one live a lot or a little?
When used like this, it means either to live long or to have a full life (as distinct from a dried-up existence).
Thank you Philip, I had the same question
"We live long" is accepted
what is the difference between "trăi" and "locui" ?
"a trăi" means to live (tu trăiești -> you're alive) in the sense of being alive or to exist in most contexts, and "a locui" means to live in a (stable) place.
I see you study French.
Is the same difference that exists in French with habiter and vivre?
"Je habite en France" (I live in France) but "je vis ma vie" (I live my life).
Yes, the same difference. But it's worth pointing out that "a trăi" is the general verb to live (as is vivre in French), and it's perfectly fine to say "trăiesc in Romania" and "je vis en France".
Thank you for the explanation. ☺
How would you say "I live life to the fullest"?
"(Eu) Îmi trăiesc viața la maxim."
So does this mean"we are very alive"- not even a little bit dead?- or "we live a long time"?
