THIS WORD ORDER IS SO CONFUSING!!!!!!!!!! D': D': D': D': D':
It trips me up at times, too. I read it first as the boy eats and paul bread. Just takes a bit of practice.
The word order is VSO — verb (itheann), then subject (an buachaill agus Pól), then object (arán).
So, the only difference is that the verb goes to the very beginning. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! :D
We would more generally say "Paul and the boy eat bread." in English.
I typed in "Paul and the boy" without thinking since it sounds more natural! Obviously got it wrong ...
Yes I opted for eat as well. It sounds more natural
I guess "the boy and Paul eats bread " is wrong. That little "s" is not liked I guess...
