"Do you usually eat bread all day?"

April 10, 2013



One of the suggested answers is "Isst du für gewöhnlich den ganzen Tag Brot?" Why is "für" necessary here? Can't we just say "Isst du gewöhnlich den ganzen Tag Brot?"?


This was a really hard one to get out of nowhere. I went for "Isst du meist Brot den ganzen Tag" but no luck lol. I wasn't expecting "Brot" to be at the end of the sentence though. Is there a rule for word order for questions such as this?
