  5. "How far is it from here?"

"How far is it from here?"

Translation:Jak je to odsud daleko?

September 4, 2018



Jak daleko je to odsud - does this order wrong? Why?


It works. It changes the emphasis slightly:

'Jak je to odsud DALEKO?' = 'How FAR is it from here?'

'Jak daleko je to ODSUD?' = 'How far is it FROM HERE?'

I've added it as an accepted translation.


I wrote "jak daleko to odsud je", why is it wrong?


It is a possible, if less common, order. If it is missing, I will add it. There are many possible orders here.

Better (for me) is Ja daleko odsud to je?
