In LingQ Mini StoriesStory 5, there is the sentence “גם לה יש הרבה שיעורים”. Wouldn’t it be more usual to write this as יש לה גם הרבה שיעורים ?

גם לה יש שיעורים -

Sorry I missed this great answer until now. Thank you! Wow, how long until someone can know a new language well enough to see this subtlety?


No worries! It’s difficult to follow all the notifications. :slight_smile: Well, it’s a tiny little thing, just a matter of experience - and - as Steve repeatedly says - “comprehensive input”, in Krashen’s words. :slight_smile: The more we learn, the more intuitive these things become. :slight_smile:
