Grade 9 Grammar Lesson 2 Word order (1) Verb + object; place and time

image Normally, the verb and the object of the verb go together. We don’t put any other words between them.

image The verb and the place (where?) go together.

image If the verb has an object, the place comes after the verb + object.

image Time (when?/how often?/how long?) often goes after place.

image Time can be put at the beginning of the sentence.

image Some time words like always/never/often/seldom etc usually go with the verb in the middle of the sentence.
