It is more common in English to use the phrase "that kind of" rather than "such", which is a bit odd and formal.
Yes or even "those kinds of" in a weird plural
I wrote this too. the man never writes those kinds of letters.
Do the sentences "De man schrijft nooit zulke brieven" and "De man schrift zulke brieven nooit" have the wrong word order?
both are correct, the second sentence would be emphasising he never does that.
Not true. I have British friends that use such constructions very often.
Yes it does and yes we do!
how do we identify as to where is the subject of the sentence
In this case, the man would have to be the subject because the verb is singular and the letters are plural.
For the sentence "Zulke brieven schrijven de mannen nooit," would context be the only way to know what the subject is? (Ignoring, of course, the fact that brieven being the subject makes no sense).
