"Is he coming along?"
Translation:Komt hij mee?
Shouldn't it be 'Kom hij " instead of "Komt" ? I thought that in the question form we dropped the "t". Thank you!
"Kom jij", but "komt hij". The rule is applied to the second person, not to the third.
Mee is the form met (with) becomes when it combines with a verb. Meekomen = to come with, also meebrengen = to bring with, or meespelen = to play with, or meedansen = to dance with. There are a number of verbs like this in Dutch. Met and mee can sometimes appear in the same sentence: Kom je met ons mee? = Are you coming along with us? The mee belongs to komen (meekomen), and the met goes with ons (met ons).
Why "mee"? There's no "me" in the English sentence here. I mean, it's kind of implied, but it's certainly not literally there. And even more implied would be "us".
