Yes and yes! Note that the emphasis shifts between 'samen' and 'thee drinken' when you do. ;)

Thanks! Just to be clear, is the emphasis on the last word ('samen' or 'thee')?

Actualluy, no! It's a bit tricky:

  • Ze drinken samen thee - 'samen' is emphasised
  • Ze drinken thee samen - 'thee drinken' is emphasised
