does the word "proberen" play a role of infinitive in this sentence?
the sentence is: het is niet makkelijk, maar ik zal proberen het je uit te leggen. does "zal proberen" together plays a role of main verb here? what i understand is that "uitleggen " plays a role as infinitive at the end of sentence. but does "proberen" also play a role of infinitive? and is there any grammar to limit the number of the infinitive in one sentence? thanks in advance!!!
"zal" is the main verb, "proberen" and "uit...leggen" are infinitives. Same as in English: "I will try to explain it to you". And yes, you can create infinite run-on sentences with this.
Disclaimer: native Dutch speaker, but native speakers often explain grammar totally wrong.
If you want to make the future in Dutch you use 1. zullen (zal) + infinitive (more officiaal), 2. gaan (ga) + infinitive (go to) and 3. the present (today of tomorrow). The verb-infinitive proberen (try to) takes te. Other verbs take om+te. Uitleggen=explain, is separable verbum. In this case the prefix (uit) goes before the te and the verb back. That if you have separeble verb with om+te of te. The other cases: 1. present: ik leg uit=i explain (first the verb and at the end of the sentence the prefix), 2. secondary sentence: ik beloof dat ik dat uitleg (at the end of the secon. sentence together the verb+prefix). I think that you have headacke and i stop.
