Oh my god thank you this lesson was making me feel like a crazy person. Like I can at least imagine how you eat "from" a place (from a bowl, or from a taco truck) but okay, that actually paints a picture.
Probably the better English translation would be "The boy is sleeping there, at the place the pretty girl is running away from." Still clunky but at least communicates the idea.
Did he do something that made her want to run away? Then just fell asleep; the cad!
I was under the impression that the verb would have to be placed after the 2nd subject which is "a csinos lány" so that it had to be "Ott alszik a fiú, ahonnan a csinos lány elfut."
But apparently "elfut" could also be placed right after "ahonnan"... is there any difference in meaning between placing "elfut" after "ahonnan" and after "a csinos lány"?
