    Walk up/help
    Message from flocon84 posted on 19-10-2017 at 21:07:29 (D | E | F)
    Hi everybody,
    I am creating my website destinate for French and English people but I'm not really sure about the meaning of the domain name.
    Actually the name is "WALKUP" and my job is hiking guide and lifecoach. I guess walk up means something like going up to something or progress on his way.
    But i rode I read it also means building without lift!
    Would you know how an English or American person could understand WALK UP?
    Best regards

    "Walk up" as a noun can mean a building without a lift, but usually it is just a verb with a preposition, meaning to step upward, whether on stairs or a hill. We could also use it to indicate walking to a certain place, at which we stopped. "In the store, people walk up to the counter and speak with the clerk."

    I am American. I have never heard a building called a "walk up".
    walkup by itself doesn't mean anything to me. In my head as I read it I start to think "wake up" but that's different.
    You walk up to something. Walk up to my friend and introduce yourself. I walked up to the policeman to ask for directions.
    I walked up a hill to get to the top.
    I walked up the stairs.

    Hello Mr Smith..
    A building is not usually called a walk up, just an apartment..I've just been looking at an ad for a "fourth-floor walk up in Pensacola with a great view of the Gulf" (if only!)

    Interesting! I don't search for condos or apartments which is probably why I have never seen that term.
