    Default Translation Problem

    How do you say "My house is nearer than your house from here" in Arabic?

    One says: bait-ii 'aqrabu min baiti-ka min hunaa.
    Another says: min baiti-ka, bait-ii 'aqrabu min hunaa.
    Another says: bait-ii 'aqrabu min hunaa min baiti-ka.

    Which one is right?

    I'd say AK's first suggestion and Yasir's as well.

    What about

    بيتي أقرب إلى هنا من بيتك

    to minimize the iltibas?
