  5. "On tam někde bydlí."

"On tam někde bydlí."

Translation:He lives somewhere there.

October 31, 2017



In the English be "somewhere over there"? Not sure it makes sense to translate as "somewhere there".


"Somewhere there" is fine. And the English "somewhere OVER there" is certainly used. Problem is, that may be a different sentence in Czech. Perhaps one of the CZ natives on the team will weigh in on that.


I am not sure. For me, the Czech word order is quite specific. The sense is you are discusing some place in connection with some person and then you say he actually lives somewhere there. So I would not use "over there" here.
