Across vs. Through

Key Differences

Across suggests a horizontal movement on or over the surface, usually in a straight line, indicating breadth. It implies moving from one side to another. Through, on the other hand, connotes a movement that goes inside and comes out the other end, involving depth. It implies penetration or passing into something and emerging out.

When using Across, the focus is on the surface or expanse being crossed. It's often used for open spaces like fields or areas like rooms. Through implies a journey within a confined space, such as a tunnel or forest, where the starting and exit points are different.

Across can also mean reaching or spreading over an area, suggesting coverage. For example, a bridge goes across a river. In contrast, Through suggests a continuous route or passage from one point to another, often with obstacles or mediums in between, like a road going through mountains.
