Desperate times require desperate measures! As long as you walk on your bed afterwards....
What is the difference between "golvet" and "marken"? Does "marken" have to be outdoor?
I don't understand why the sentence order changes sometimes... if I write "Ibland jag sover på golvet" it would be wrong?
Yes, because of the V2 rule, meaning that the verb wants to be the second part of a sentence. This sentence has four parts: ibland - sover - jag - på golvet. As we see, the verb follows the adverb if we move the adverb to the start of the sentence. If we instead go for a more direct word order, we get jag - sover - ibland - på golvet, where the verb is still in second position. It's even grammatically acceptable to say på golvet - sover - jag - ibland.
Does that clarify and/or exemplify it a bit for you?
Hi! Thanks a lot for the explanation! So the rule is: the verb always follows the adverb? They need to be together, and with the adverb coming first? This is a really bit hard for me once I try to translate from Portuguese and this doesn't occur...
Nonono, the verb does not always follow the adverb. My point is that the verb will generally want to be the second part of a sentence, as is the case with all thre sentences above in my explanation.
No, "golvet" is always a man-made floor.
If you were sleeping on the ground, you would be "på marken", and would be outside.
Golvet is the floor that you stand/walk on while in a building.... "I dropped my pen on the floor"
Våning is a level in a building.... "I'm going up to the second floor"
Hope that makes sense!
But what it feel to put the adverb at the beginning of the sentence, is it the natural way of speaking, or convey some subtle changes in significance
Late answer, but yes, there's a subtle difference in what you communicate. The thing you put first in the sentence is the 'topic', the thing you start out with, usually the thing you're talking about. So very roughly it could be Ibland sover jag på golvet = statement about what sometimes happens while Jag sover på golvet ibland = statement about me.
