Translation:Is it near?
So..... "is it nearby?".... Why wasnt this accepted? Am i misunderstanding the word ちかい？
How would you say "Are you near?" in Japanese? Just got curious used it for this answer and I got it wrong.
Just remember, it's still beta and the mods don't look at these threads very often because the threads/comments are here for us to help each other. To that end, make sure you report it if you think your answer should have been accepted, they catalogue and scrutinize the reports and then let you know if they fix it. It can take a couple of months but it makes the app better for everyone.
Chiming in on a problem expressed earlier. "Is it nearby" was flagged as incorrect. I reported it and then answered the question with "nearby" multiple times so that I could report it a few more times. :)
"Is it near?" bothers me for some reason. Maybe it's because I'm thinking of "near" as a preposition and not an adverb, making this sentence sound about as weird as "is it above?"
I remeber this because in Spanish "cerca" is "near" and I think English has "circa" that means "approximately" :)
