    cross and across

    Dear teachers,

    Please read the sentence:

    In the march across the grasslands, the soldiers experienced hunger and hardships.
    My question is: Can I use 'crossing' instead of 'across' in this sentence? If I can is there any difference between the two?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Re: cross and across

    You would have to rephrase the sentence to use "crossing".


    "While/When crossing the grasslands on their march, the soldiers..."
