Is it not possible to have the verb first then the adverb in this sentence? Duolingo didn't allow it for me, but I just want to know whether I'd be able to generally.
Jej mąż gotuje źle? Should be accepted.
"Jej mąż gotuje źle" - why not?
złe is adjective, neuter or plural not masculine personal
źle is adverb, which is what you need here.
For the word order- it sounds less natural, but is not incorrect.
Where would a Polish native speaker usually put the adverb źle in this sentence? If not at the end, where is it better placed?
Before the verb it describes.
Jej mąż źle gotuje = Her husband cooks the evil / Her husband cooks with anger :-)))
my answer 'jej mąż gotuje źłe' was accepted
"Jej mąż kiepsko gotuje" was rejected
