In a Novial text I saw this:
Li matra intenter at drinkar
kafee o tee in li gardene kun li familie.

The mother intends to have coffee or tea in the garden with her family.

Where does _at drinkar_ come from, is it Danish in hommage to OJespersen? I
have understood that Novial does not even pretend to be "naturalistic". The
funny thing is that the _at_ is followed by what looks like a present tence
and not the expected infinitive - which as we all know doesn't have an _r_
in Danish.
