Translation:We have seventeen more sandwiches.
Yes and no. My experience is that steeds is a word added to share the feeling of emphasis on the word still. Both mean still, but steeds emphasizes what or who is still there for some reason (ie: annoyed that there are nog steeds 17 sandwiches or glad there are nog steeds 17, vs simply there are nog 17 sandwiches, for no particular reason). ☺
Something just does not compute. I believe...we still have seventeen sandwiches..should be the correct translation, however...still..is not a given option in the new word availability format. Does...nog zeventien...convey “that is all there is”, or “still an additional seventeen”, which the ...more sandwiches...implies.
There is a difference in English between 'We have seventeen more sandwiches' (ie we had some sandwiches previously), which is accepted and 'We still have seventeen sandwiches' (ie we had seventeen to begin with and they're still there!). Can anyone tell me what the Dutch is trying to convey here?
