Section 13.3

Word Order

Each part of a clause--the subject, the verb, the direct object and indirectobjects, if any, and any adverbs--must be orderedappropriately in the clause. Most clauses use ordinaryword order, but inverted word order (verb beforesubject) is called for occasionally. Many sentence elements--for example adjectives--have their own principles for ordering. If important in scientific and technical writing, these principles are discussedin the sections on the various elements.
