Hi. For the sentence, "Il veut que j'aille acheter du lait." can it be substituted for "il me veut aller acheter du lait" ? Or is this sentence incorrect?
No, you cannot say -
Il me veut acheter du lait
Vouloir que requires the subjunctive mood for the verb after que.
Your other option suggests that "He wants me to go to buy some milk"
"Il veut que j'aille acheter du lait". I think your option construction will need to be written as shown.
Hope this helps.
A bit confused.. you should not be required to use the subjunctive in A1.. but I am not liking your alternative.
« Il veut m’acheter du lait. »
Hi, The Late,
I am afraid what you are suggesting has a completely different meaning -
He wants to buy me some milk
He wants me to go and buy some milk
