A post From one side of the bridge to the other says

But what do we say if we want to go from one side of the bridge to the other?

I also found lots of people use this expression.

Is it idiomatic to say that?


Yes, that is an idiomatic expression.

  • I think this answers the question, but it needs a little more discussion to be really helpful. Can you explain why it's idiomatic, or under what circumstances this idiom might be used as opposed to another idiom? This community generally frowns on one sentence answers (and questions), so it's always good to elaborate on your answer and find a way to teach the questioner something. You risk downvotes when you write a short answer like this. – dwilli Mar 11 '20 at 17:18
  • I'm sorry, but "is this idiomatic" is a simple question, and I think it should get a simple answer. If something is not idiomatic, it is possible to explain why it isn't, and what is the right thing to say. If there is nothing wrong with an expression, there's nothing to say about it. Now, if any of you really thinks there is more to say, why don't you just add an answer, including what additional information you think is fitting? Thank you for your attention. – Jack O'Flaherty Mar 11 '20 at 17:25
