Just a quick question: what's the English word for taking a certain lane at an intersection. For instance, if you want to turn left you take the left turning lane. How do you call that in English? In Dutch it's 'voorsorteren' if it's any help.

Aren't you in high school already? But I realize hogeschool in Dutch means superior education in English.

Unless you were like 12 or 13 you'd not be on middle school :p

"to bear"...

For instance: bear left to enter highway X7 500m ahead.

But it is not a perfect translation. To bear is used in this case as a gentler (wider) form of "to turn".

But in English it sounds so weird to sort.
You need to sort better so others can pass you.
That just sounds weird.

yes, i just ment the word, but it has slightly different meanings in other languages. Sortirati in slovene you can use with salad, to sort salad.

Still, the number of Italian tourists in Ljubljana isn't normal. Especially compared to other foreigners, particularly Austrians and Germans who are virtually inexistent. :s

How do you in slovenian say for "bearing" (regarding the lanes)? I am now thinking about our Croatian word for that (prestrojiti) which has unique meaning, you cannot use for any other meanings except taking the proper lane in traffic.

Same case in Bulgarian - "престроявам се" (prestroyavam se)...

The "voor-" in "voorsorteren" meaning "in advance"? Can't think of a single word that works; if I understand you right it's like people sorting themselves out, but that may not be the way everyone would say it.

Or "keep" left? As in, if you're not in the left lane, get there; and if you're already in the left lane, stay there; because that's where you'll need to be?

I think he means situations at traffic lights, not interchanges or lane splits on freeways. This Dutch word "voorsorteren" does not have a similar equivalent in English. I think queueing comes closest.

Something as "please take the appropriate lane" comes to my mind. German has a verb "einordnen" for this, if I understand the meritum of this conversation well BTW we use "zařadit se - do správného pruhu"
