Word order

Word order

The basic word order in an affirmative clause is: subject - (auxiliary verb) - main verb - object - complements, for example:
The boy throws the ball over the fence.

Compliments can be placed first in the sentence, foe example:
To morrow I shall wash the car.

Adjectives normally precede the noun, for example:
The small boy, a red car.
Adverbs normally precede adjectives or other adverbs they characterize, for example: Brightly white, extremely fast.
Averbs usually follow verbs, but may precede, for example:
This car accelerates quickly.
