"Why do they write or read during lunch?"
Translation:Waarom schrijven of lezen zij tijdens het middageten?
The word order for this sentence is confusing. Is there anyway to understand this sentences' word order and if this type repeats somewhere else?
Is it necessary include the article and say "het middageten," or can you just say "middageten"? What's the difference?
To me personally it sounds awfully strange to say "tijdens middageten". I know in English you don't have to say "during the lunch", though in Dutch it definitely is better to say "tijdens het middageten".
