Translation:The school is low.
in the description part of the lesson they explained that there is no specific word for tall or short, so in reference to structures they use low and high. Therefor this sentence means that the school is small in reference to height.
Seriously? First, the road is high... Maybe the school had to stay low, because it was driving...
I went to an underground school called Riverheights at the top of the slope of the river valley. This is so confusing in any language. It's low from ground level, so I'd want to say it's sunken low, though it was built that way and never moved. It's not prone to flooding as it's out of the river valley, but it's low in elevation as if it were on the slope. It's also low-level as it was till grade nine back then, now grade eight, in any case pre-high school . . .
How low do you want to go? The cattle low? A low blow indeed . . .
Low as in "a low fence". The school is "short" sounds better in English.
I'm guessing it is more in the sense of a short building or in a valley or something, but I'm really not sure.
School is pretty general. Maybe it works just like in English where you have to place adjective before a noun. So, school is simply school. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Yes, speaking of a school in general is quite normal in English. It is the use of the adjective "low" that is quite confusing.
I imagine they either mean that or that the school is in a low lying area, such as a valley. It is not, however, anything I have ever heard in English. I would never say "My house is low." I imagine that is in part because of the ambiguity as to whether it is a short building or in a low lying area.
Now that I think of it, we do not say "that building is high" either. We speak of buildings as if they were people--they are either short or tall, not low or high.
It isn't silent, I'm pretty sure these characters:ㅈㅅ(It might also beㅊ) Turn into more like a t/s sound when they're underneath a character (sorry if I'm incorrect)
Would it make it more confusing if I pointed out that the more usual antonym for TALL would be SHORT and for SMALL would be LARGE?
The sentences are so disappointing. Wondering if a computer came up with those automatically.
