Place Manner Time


Place Manner Time

Place Manner Time is a term used in linguistic typology to state the general order of adpositional phrases in a language's sentences: "to the store by car yesterday".It would seem that it is common among SVO languages.Fact|date=June 2007
English, French, and Spanish belong to this category.

An example in English is: I will drive to the store in my car tomorrow, where "to the store" is the destination, "in my car" is the method of travel, and "tomorrow" is the temporal phrase. (The other elements of the sentence are irrelevant for this example.)

The other common adpositional order is Time Manner Place (e.g, German and Japanese)
