The way "weg" is pronounced here is a little odd. There is a clear difference in pronunciation between "Weg" (road/way) and "weg" (away), while (road/way) is pronounced correctly (away) should be pronounced more like "wäk" or something like that!
It's not just a little odd. It's wrong. Please report it.
i reported it too. :/
the Adverb "weg" is definitely pronouced different than the noun "Weg".
adv: w (long a) g
Noun: W (long e) g
At least this is my perception
The adverb ‘weg’=“away” should be pronounced with a short lax vowel [vɛk]. The noun ‘Weg’=“way” should be pronounced with a long tense vowel [veːk].
Methinks there is a Kraken :)
Why isn't weg at the end of the sentence here?
You could say that too... it's just a different accentuation :)
Specifically, ‘weg vom Wasser’ focuses on the water, while ‘vom Wasser weg’ focuses on getting away.
Move away from the water?
or "Go away from the water"
But the request is more polite than that: "Gehen Sie" = more like "please, go away..."?
No, it just uses the formal you, as far as I am aware.
That would be ‘Bitte gehen Sie…’ or ‘Gehen Sie bitte…’.
Warum Dativ und nicht Akk, denn ist aus Bewegung erschließen.
‘von’ always takes the dative — as do ‘aus’, ‘außer’, ‘bei’, ‘mit’, ‘nach’, ‘seit’, and ‘zu’.
Yes, of course it does, excuse a moments stupidity!
