Subject: Re: go up to

This has probably reached "mootdom," but "up" in the sense of "go up to the

door" to me would mean "right up to."

"Walk up the street," however would be going north, up a slope, or walking

towards a position that the speaker is psychologically identifying with.

The reason you go "up a walk" to a house is that if you didn't, the yard

and the house would flood every time it rained. We're talking common sense

here, not dialect.
