Sentence of the day
The sentence of the day is the following, found at the database at http://mim.hi.is:
Það er nú eitt af því góða við jólin að
that is now one of the good about Christmas that
þá er daginn farinn að lengja aftur : )
then is day.the.m.acc gone.m.acc to lengthen again
‘Now that’s one good thing about Christmas, then the day starts getting longer again.’
This one wins today’s competition not only for being seasonally appropriate, but for showing the unambiguous subject position of the accusative (between the auxiliary and the participle), for being one of those lovely weather/fate-type accusatives, and, most importantly, for conditioning gender/case agreement on the participle, like a nice and well-behaved structural accusative (cf. discussion of variation in early work by Avery Andrews, if I remember right). For all these reasons, this is the sentence of the day.
