What about the cats?

Cats are never tolerant, they hate you.

Why use an Anglicism like 'tolerant' when there is a great word like verdraagzaam.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FM_2000

tolerant is synoniem van verdraagzaam

Tolerante is a "latin-ism"

what's the rule for word order here?

I don't think that there is any difference between Dutch and English in this sentence (word-order wise of course)... Perhaps you had to remove "The" and simply say "Nederland" in Dutch. But apart from that, the word order of the sentence stays the same. :)
