It's very annoying that Duo would largely accept "nice" for "szép" BUT NOT HERE >:(
I'll file this under "things that never happen to me."
You and a beautiful girl are telephoning won't make the grade... Guess Lady Gaga was wrong in the videoclip of "Telephone" then.. So, the moral of the story here is "NEVER trust Lady Gaga"..
so if "telefonáltok" = you (pl) talk on the phone, would "ti" be used instead of "te" if "and the beautiful girl was" not in the sentence?
Yes - or you could drop it completely.
How do you decide, in a case like this, whether to use second or third person plural?
Te és a lány = ti, it has to be second person plural, because the group includes “te”.
Thanks. So "A lány és te" would also be second person plural? Is there a rule forcing "te" to the beginning?
Yes, "A lány és te" would also be second person plural.
Is there a rule forcing "te" to the beginning? No, we are free to choose the order.
But if it were én + te, that is first person plural :)
Thanks. 3rd + 2nd = 2nd; 2nd+1st = 1st. Makes sense!
Just like in English. You and him, you are there. You and I, we are here.
