    Default Dokrai

    Hey.

    Can someone tell me what "dokrai" means, and is it the same as "do kraia?" And is it a real word (dokrai) or just slang?

    Thanks.

    Ah okay, thank you! So "up" is like "up to the sky" (just an example ) or what?

    Have you heard it in Andrea's song? Because both meanings are correct, but in the song it means 'until the end'.
    Hope I helped.

    Yes, thats why I asked. I have searched for the meaning, but couldn't find anything. Do you use it mostly for "up" or "until the end" ?

    Thank you I think that "all the way" has several meanings. Is it like "all the way to the beach" or is it more like "I have achieved so much, and I went all the way, gone through a lot of stuff" ? In a more powerful way.. If you understand me.

    You're welcome, вечно/завинаги (vechno/zavinagi) depends on the context Still ask if you have any questions.

    Okay. If it's something that will last forever, or will be there til the last day. If it makes sense.
