"Does she imagine things?"
Translation:Bildet sie sich Sachen ein?
Einbilden. It's a separable verb, but the hints aren't displaying properly on this page. (2015/1/12)
I'm back from a long hiatus away from German, and it seems that the hints are weaker now. "Bildet" shows "is", "educates", and "moulds". Is it supposed to be showing that?
"ein" is a separable prefix. It's part of the verb "einbilden".
Nope, vorstellen is a separable verb. The (accepted) possibility would be:
Stellt sie sich Dinge vor?
How come? I recall reading somewhere that "sich vorstellen" means to imagine. I even had this sentence written down. "Kannst du dir so etwas vorstellen? = can you imagine such a thing? "
Because of the auxiliary verb ("kannst"), the main verb goes to the end of the sentence ("vorstellen). Otherwise, the sentence would have the main verb split: "Stellst du dir so etwas vor?", I suppose.
