    Word Inversions mathswhiz101

    so what im wondering is after you use a a phrase that inverts the verb and the personal pronoun, do verbs later on it in sentence be inverted also?

    Eg. Is it mit meinem Geld, kaufe ich Bon-bons und ich gehe ins Kino

    OR ; ; ; ; ; ; ;und gehe ich ins Kino

      i think its und ich gehe. und doesnt change the sentence structure

      Verb must always come second in a sentence, "und" joins two sentences together, marking it as the first word of the second sentence so the verb must come after that

      People above me are incorrect.

      Firstly, verb doesn't come "second", it comes "second phrase".

      For example: Am Samstag, gehe ich nach Limerick.

      When you have "und", you shall treat it as if it's a full stop.

      und ich gehe would be correct.

      After a time phrase the verb comes first; gehe ich, and if you use "und" the verb comes second; ich gehe.
