Since no one else has pointed this out:
Shouldn't this be <OlomoucDaq Hopbe' Sosnowiec>.
In an article in a HolQeD (which I hope Voragh can post for us, since I
don't have it), MO explained that Sum and Hop do not take objects, and to
use a standard of comparison, you have to mark it with -Daq, as so:
X is far from Y
Y-Daq Hop X
(At Y, X is far)
Judging by the fact that neither the BG nor any of the 'utlh caught this, it
is a little-known rule, but a rule nonetheless. (Some might prefer to think
of it as a 'property' of these verbs rather than a 'rule'.). (Or perhaps
it's a figment of my imagination, but I remember reading about it as part of
a longish interview with MO; I believe it was conducted by charghwI'.)
