"I drink juice."
Translation:Ik drink sap.
BeckyCarr explains it well. In dutch we use the rule "ik of jij erachter" which literally translates to: "I or you behind" those are the exceptions when the t isn't used. If you is behind like "drink jij / speel jij" (do you drink / do you play) the extra "t" isn't used. While when jij (you) is infront "jij drinkt / jij speelt" (you drink / you play) the "t" is used.
Geeze this is a mess.
To clear this up for anyone wondering:
Drink is for first person singular
Drinkt is for second and third person singular
Drinken is for plural.
So a chart for drinken would look like this:
- ik drink
- jij drinkt
- hij/ze drinkt
- wij drinken
- jullie drinken
- zij drinken
