"The cat walks."
Translation:Die Katze geht.
is there any specific rule as to when gehen is used and not laufen?
i dont remember but i have seen in other examples that gehen and laufen almost seem interchangeable but i wondered if there is some way to know which to use when... thanks for your reply...
They are only interchangeable in certain circumstances. Here is a great explanation about the difference between laufen, gehen and rennen: https://german.stackexchange.com/questions/18395/is-there-any-difference-between-laufen-and-rennen
tldr: gehen and laufen can both mean to walk in specific use cases.
haha... quite a controversial topic i gather!!!!!!!!! but yes, most enlightening and certainly very helpful - thank you very very much for posting this link and for taking the time to help me out...
