How can you tell the difference if "om" is going to be before or after the object?
In this case, "kaas" (cheese) is the object of "verkopen" (to sell), so in a way it is part of the subclause that starts with the conjunction "om".
Dank u wel. That's what I thought would be the case.
I am dutch and did this test just for fun, and to see if I could find mistakes.. But I would say: hij belooft kaas te verkopen and not hij belooft om kaas te verkopen.. or both... strange!
Because its a OM VERB om usually be omitted
