I am really struggling with knowing where to place words in a sentence. In particular, I was trying to formulate some sentences using 什么 and the sentence 'What do you want to eat for lunch?' popped into my head.
So I was trying to write this in Chinese, and am a bit stuck.
I initially wrote : 你午饭要吃什么？
But that seems wrong and unnatural to me. Either like there is something missing or I have the characters in the wrong place.
I thought maybe instead : 午饭你要吃什么？
But that is certainly wrong. I am pretty sure that 你要去哪里吃午饭？is correct (hopefully my intuition is correct!), but in the same vein I can't quite figure out what would be wrong with 吃午饭，你要去哪里？
I can also think of 你在哪个地方要吃午饭？
But obviously these all mean something different to the original- these talk of place and not 'what do you want to eat'. I am still stuck on the original sentence!
Also, I have seen this SE post, but I am still unsure with regards to my specific question.
