Proč ne 'Děti pijou mléko'?
Both are acceptable. Pijou is slightly more colloquial, pijí slightly more formal.
Thanks. I wrote pijou at the beginning and it didn't accept it. I will report it.
We do not accept 'Pijou/Pijí děti mléko.' as it sounds more like a question than a declarative sentence.
'Děti pijou mléko.', on the other hand, has been accepted for more than 2 yrs.
Just doing some reviewing for the next few weeks before attempting to move forward. So "mleko" is the same in the nominative and accusative?
Yes, all neuter words are.
Is "pijí mléko děti" strange to say? In the context of, e.g., 'Do you drink milk?' 'No, children drink milk (and I am not a child).'
It is a question word order. If you want to stress děti in a declarative sentence, use "Mléko pijí děti.".
