Moderator note: Split from here. I know this post is old, but the sentence Man darf keinen Alkohol mit in die Schule bringen, which Language_Student gave as example, the verb is "mitbringen" right? why is it split? there is a modal verb there "dürfen", isn't it suppossed that because of it, the main verb "dürfen" must be conjugated and the second verb "mitbringen" must remain in its infinitive form at the end of the sentece? Thanks!
