I.along [Brit əˈlɒŋ, Am əˈlɔŋ, əˈlɑŋ] ADV When along is used as a preposition meaning all along it can usually be translated by le long de: there were trees along the road = il y avait des arbres le long de la route. For particular usages see the entry below.
along is often used after verbs of movement. If the addition of along does not change the meaning of the verb, along will not be translated: as he walked along = tout en marchant.
