Doesn't "Ik zie niet zijn nek." work as well? I thought Dutch is pretty much as flexible as German when it comes to word order...
Not really, "niet" comes after the direct object ("zijn nek") in almost all cases.
I had the same question. So 'niet' comes after the direct object but before the indirect object if we deny a verb? Do i understand well?
Is this an insult?
No, it only has the literal meaning.
Ik zie niet zijn nek?
