Go by/meaning
Message from ali999 posted on 15-11-2013 at 12:15:19 (D | E | F)
Hello,

Could you please help me?
What does " go by " in this sentence mean?
-I saw a school bus go by the school.
Thank you for your answers.

Hello.

If you highlight the word and click 'translate' at the top left of this page, you will find possible translations.
Which one do you think is best?

Hello.
Here is an example when by means near. I will be standing by (near, beside, next to) the statue.
In this case, I think there may be a better choice. Would you like to try again?
Hint: since a bus is a motor vehicle, it is in motion, and it goes by the school.

Hello,

I might be wrong, but I don't think this is a correct sentence.
-I saw a school bus go by the school.
Go by is infinitive here, and it's a bit weird to put it in that form in a sentence like this.
-I saw a school bus goING by the school.' would be a better solution here, wouldn't it?
In this sentence, it would mean that the bus goes down the street where the school is or something like that.

Hello,
I think it's just the same as "go past the school".

Hello lukaznachi,

You can use either an infinitive or a gerund after a verb of perception but there is difference of meaning:

Hello,

'To go by' is a phrasal verb,in this context it means 'to pass'.
'To go by bus' on the other hand means to travel on a bus.
English is full of phrasal verbs, with 'go' you can go by, go up, go up to, go down, go round, go back, go off, go along with, go out, go out with.

Hello.

To go (or pass) by something means to pass near it, i.e. to approach a point near it from one direction, and then to continue away from it in the other.

If a bus goes by a school, then it approaches a point X near the school (say, on the road directly in front of the school) from one direction (say, left) and then continues away in the other (in this case, to the right).

bus -----X------>
school S

To "go by" (without an object of "by") simply means to cross a "plane of view" from one side to the other (usually left-to-right or right-to-left): "He sat at a table outside the café, watching people and cars go by."

See you.
