Syntax focus– Order of parts in a sentence

Natural order of a sentence

involves constructing a sentence so the subject comes before the predicate

Oranges grow in California.

Inverted order of a sentence (sentence inversion)

involves constructing a sentence so the predicate comes before the subject (this is a device in which normal sentence patterns are reversed to create an emphatic or rhythmic effect)

In California grow oranges.

Split order of a sentence

divides the predicate into two parts with the subject coming in the middle

In California oranges grow.

Now try it. Create a sentence and revise it into each of these three patterns.
