  5. "The intelligent musician als…

"The intelligent musician also speaks Korean."

Translation:Älykäs muusikko puhuu myös koreaa.

Why does myös come after puhuu in the Finnish sentence?


Because the wanted emphasis is that the musician also speaks KOREAN, in addition to other languages.

If it were "älykäs muusikko myös puhuu koreaa" it would be in addition to other things they do, e.g. "Älykäs muusikko myös puhuu koreaa, maalaa ja grillaa joka lauantai" (The intelligent musician also speaks Korean, paints and grills every Saturday).


Interesting! But since we don't know that context, both orders ought to be accepted?
