OK since this sentence starts with a verb I think it should be a question! Anyone one know why or if I am wrong?
Eric, it is English that starts questions with a verb, not Hungarian.
Like English, Hugarian can start questions with a question word ('hol', etc.). But otherwise word order is the same in Hungarian as for a declarative sentence, and Hungarian relies on intonation instead of word order.
So i am still confused here. In one of the previous sentences (about going to the water) the comments said that the le- doesn't necessarily mean "down" it mainly slindicates that this is a completed action. Does the same apply here? So what I am asking is, are both of these correct: The birds fly down into the garden The birds fly into the garden
