Why can't this be "where did you go?" ?
It would be "Kam jsi šel?"
Is that the rule for every verb? And all pronouns? Or is the form of být omitted for the third person?
It's my understanding that a form of "být" is not required for the third person, singular or plural.
Not just "is not required", it is very archaic with it. So archaic that we can't even use "je", only "jest" in it.
Obviously we were speaking about the third person.
On jest šel. Oni sú šli.
"Kam JSEM šel?"
"Kam JSI šel?"
"Kam JSME šli?"
"Kam JSTE šli?"
* Edt.: I had misunderstood that at first.
Only in the past tense.
"Where has he gone" should be accepted. Reported.
I would say that is Kam odešel. but perhaps it could be accepted.
Vláďo,prosím Vás, a WHERE HE WENT se používá také ? A pokud ano,tak taky spíš pro otázku KAM ODEŠEL než pro KAM ŠEL ? Předem díky za odpověď.
Používá se: Where did he go? Pro obojí.
