the width of the bridge
« on: January 18, 2015, 05:29:08 am »
a. I crossed the bridge.
b. I walked across the bridge.


Do these only mean
1. I traversed the length of the bridge?

How would you say that you traversed the width of the bridge?

c. I traversed the width of the bridge.
d. I went across the width of the bridge.
e. I walked along the whole width of the bridge.
f. I crossed the bridge widthwise.
g. I crossed the width of the bridge.


Many thanks.

I walked from one side of the bridge to the other.
Best wishes,
