"Velmi" couldn't be used in place of "hodně"?
But only if it means "very". In this sentense it means "a lot"
Why is "první jíme hodně" wrong?
because in czech the ordinal number and the adverb are not the same. if your sentence means anything, it is "we eat the first one a lot."
Is "Nejdřív mnoho jíme" okay too?
Would "nejdriv hodne žereme" be acceptable?
It would be socially unacceptable unless you want to be vulgar and imply you are really devouring like animals.
lol...I didn't pick up on the nuance of that word's usage. Thanks.
