How do you know who is being painted? Could the girl be painting the artist? How do you know the artist is the one doing the painting (other then them being an artist)
The object suffix (+t) tells you who is being painted. lány = girl, lány + t = girl in the object case. Thus the artist painting the girl is the only scenario, no matter how you mix the words in the sentence.
lányt is accusative, so it cannot be the subject in the sentence, so the artist must be the one who is painting and the girl who is getting painted.
A pretty girl is being painted by an artist - would be better as the structure emphasises the object.
No. It’s the same verb, because you can “fest” a house. So I think “The artist is applying paint to the pretty girl” should now be accepted. Have some lingots.
