Just trying to look for sentence patterns via google. I'm sensing that my usage "ให้คุณ" in the middle of the sentence isn't acceptable as this word-pair equates to "for you" (rather than "give to you", as I initially assumed) and it seems to get used towards the end of the statement.
E.g. "ดอกไม้ให้คุณ" = Flowers for you
I thought I'd ask google translate (I acknowledge that it can be inaccurate at times) and it suggested:
So maybe that's the pattern I should follow?
ให้ (something) แก่ (somebody)
I found this blog post discussing this pattern and another one:
It sounded like there was debate whether the latter was acceptable modern form or whether the more standard first style should only be accepted.
If anyone has better insights into distinguishing between "give to you" and "for you" in Thai, I'd be happy to hear it.
