Part IV in my German Sentence Structure series where you can learn the positioning of subject, verb, objects AND adverbial phrases, such as place, time, reason and manner. The positioning of all words in a complete sentence. All of those elements have their position in a German sentence. BUT specially when it comes to adverbial phrases, where the TeKaMoLo "rule", or let's better say "tendency", applies, you have lot's of options where you can put each and every adverbial word. Most important though: A German sentence is like a good book or an exciting movie. Which means, that the main part, the most important information needs to be at the last position, at the end of the sentence!
