Sometimes it doesn't help to know the language too well: I wrote: The king paused to help the queen. This is essentially the meaning of 'stopt even'; pausing is stopping for a moment...maar tja.
But maybe you got it wrong because it needs to be present tense?
I thought about that afterwards. You may be right. I'll wait until the question comes 'round again and try it again.
Is he still stopping? Or does he do it in general?
You gotta stop to help the queen when she needs you.. lol
Aww. Sweet of him to help her out!
Why isn't "The king stopped for a moment to help the queen" correct? Please explain if you can :)
Stopped = simple past
The Dutch sentence is in the present tense.
Thankyou. For comparison, how would you say my sentence in Dutch?
De koning stopte
Thanks again :)
Is there a complete list of verbs that require the te+ infinitive?
Does the om te go with stoppen or helpen?
