Hi Martin and welcome to this list! :)

I have a small suggestion regarding the analysis of word order.

>Standard Sentence Form: > S-V-O >"The boy hit the ball" > >Interrogative Phrases >The verb slides forward, then the subject and object exchange places. > V-O-S
Couldn't you just say that the subject moves to the final place? It seems an easier analysis. Of course, I don't know if there is some diachronic reason for your explanation. :) Again, welcome! ||| daniel andreasson _________________________________________________________________ Hämta MSN Explorer kostnadsfritt på
