"Was your cat allowed in the bedroom?"

Translation:Směla vaše kočka do ložnice?

April 8, 2018



Does "směla" have to come first (or is it much more natural if it comes first)? "Vaše kočka směla do ložnice" gets marked wrong.


Well it is not wrong per se, but it is the equivalent of the English affirmative word order:

"Your cat was allowed in the bedroom?"

It is not a normal question word order, it is something you use when surprised.

I am not sure if we can accept this word order for normal questions, it can be confusing.


Can I also say ''Směla tvá kočka být v ložnici''? or does it sound unnatural?


It is natural, but a slightly different sentence.
