charghwI',

I'm pasting the relevant info, from the emails sent by De'viD, on this list.

------------------------
{lID} v. travel or move a specified or measurable distance or
trajectory [used with verbs of movement which don't take distance or
trajectory as their object]

[De'vID]> Can any of these verbs take an object, such as an angle or a
distance (as appropriate to the verb)?

No. To indicate how far the motion was (how far the person/object
moved), make use of the verb {lID}, meaning something like "travel or
move a specified or measurable distance or trajectory." The object of
{lID} is the distance moved or range of motion. So you could say {ron
SuvwI'; chorgh 'uj(mey) lID} "the warrior rolled (haphazardly) for
eight ujes" (literally, "the warrior rolled; he/she
traveled/moved/traversed eight ujes"). It could also be the other way
around: {chorgh 'uj(mey) lID SuvwI'; ron} "the warrior rolled
(haphazardly) for eight ujes" (literally, "the warrior
traveled/moved/traversed eight ujes; he/she rolled").  Or {ron muD
Duj; javmaH lawrI'(mey) lID} "the airplane rolled 60º."  (The
semicolons here don't matter. You could also use a period, since,
really, they're pairs of sentences.)
