Why doesn't ikke follow the verb in this sentence?
Is there a skill where the rules are explained? It seems completely random which should go first.
If there is an object for the verb, like "mig", "det", etc. then it goes first, then the central adverb (like "ikke")
And how about verbs with multiple objects or questions?
As far as I'm concerned, if there are multiple objects or a complex objects with many words, then you put adverb right away. So, "Jeg kender ham ikke", but "Jeg kender ikke ham og hans bror"
Thank you so much! This is a topic that hasn't been covered at all and your answers are very helpful.
I agree with Demetroid :) Or you could put the object first (in V1) if you want to avoid making a mistake. Ham og hans bror kender jeg ikke
If you discovered the others but not me, I would say "du opdagede de andre men du opdagede ikke mig"
