    Re: off across

    It's possible- if the road were on the other side of something. However, it strikes me as an unusual sentence.

    Re: off across

    Thank you Tdol.
    Here are a few more sentences. Please check whether they are right or wrong.

    (1) I was already off to office when she came to my house.
    (2) My house is off the sea coast.[I mean, my house is near to the sea coast]
    (3) I have been off reading this porn since my mother caught once I was reading.
    (4) I don't like eating this stuff because I have gone off it lately.

    (3) I have been off reading this porn since my mother caught me once I was reading it. The use of "off" is ok.
    (4) I don't like eating this stuff because I have gone off it lately.
