Hi! Could this sentence be written as: 'Co chciałbyś dostać?'. Or does the 'byś' have to be detached from the verb when we write a question? Thanks in advance!
In fact "Co chciałbyś dostać?" sounds more natural to me (as a native speaker). But it may vary depending on the region / dialect / personal habits ;)
A lot of people seem to agree with you according to what I found with a search on Google: http://zapytaj.onet.pl/Category/002,010/2,2307658,quotChcialbysquot_czy_quotchcial_bysquot.html
Yeah, I felt that this is not wrong, but strange - and not exactly a translation of the sentence... I cannot really imagine how this could be used. Maybe your translation is correct, but I'm not really sure.
Yeah, Polish. ;)
I can imagine "Co chciałbyś był dostać", but I don't even know if I am right about it.
