I dont really understand why would you say "ikke" at the end of the sentence.
If it was " the wolf is not eating an apple" it'd be "ulven spiser ikke et eple", and not "ulven spiser et eple ikke", right ?
What's the difference ?
I understand that when the object is a pronoun you have the option of placing it between the verb and the adverb. but I haven't seen an answer as to what is usually preferred or used? I would assume, in casual conversation, it's more widely used as right after the verb?
Is it more accurate to place the pronoun or adverb after the verb? E.g. "Ulven spiser henne ikke" or "Ulven spiser ikke henne." Also, does it change if it is a question, "Spiser ulven henne ikke?" or "Spiser ulven ikke henne?"
okay, lemme get this straight, so from what i'm understanding, usually "ikke" is always placed after the verb, but when a sentence is dealing with an object pronoun ('henne' in this case), the "ikke" can be placed either before or after this one. just organizing my thoughts
Answering my own question: "ulven spiser henne ikke" emphasizes that the wolf is not eating her, as if to refute a previous suspicion that he has. "ulven spiser ikke henne" emphasizes that the wolf is not eating her, perhaps he's eating somebody else instead.
Ok so... I feel like this person set the wolf on the person being eaten by the wolf. Either that or the person being eaten by the wolf is really only being love bitten by the wolf and is being over dramatic and this person is calling them out.
