hey jo-anne,

Ordering of sentence parts

A typical Turkish sentence is ordered as (subject + object + verb)

Arkadaşım [My friend --> subject] araba [car -->object] aldı [bought-->verb].

i want to know about the order of sentences but with adjectives, adverbs etc...i mean everything that is not simply subject/object/verb like when we have words like iÇin, gibi, or when we have sentences without a verb?

thanks

To expand a little further on the Subject - Object - Verb sentence, generally Turks go Subject, Time, Place, Reason, Direct Object, Verb.

But please note that Turkish word order is flexible, to create different emphasis and meaning.

Modifiers (eg adjectives/adverbs and adjectival/adverbial clauses/phrases) precede the word they are modifying (describing).
