Word order

In Greek the subject or the object may either precede or follow the verb. The noun endings and not the noun’s position in the sentence shows whether a noun phrase is the subject or the object. Therefore, a fixed word order is not needed to distinguish the subject from the object. This does not apply in English where a fixed word order is required.

O Γιάννης αγαπάει την Νάντια. Την Νάντια αγαπάει ο Γιάννης. Αγαπάει ο Γιάννης την Νάντια.
