In an affirmative sentence, the basic order of words is the following and cannot be altered:
1st- SUBJECT: It always appears before the verb.
2nd- VERB: It can have auxiliaries or not. Auxiliaries are placed before the main verb.
3rd- OBJECT: If there are two objects the order is the following: 1- person/ 2-thing
4th- MANNER: it indicates how something is done.
5th- PLACE: it indicates where something is or takes place.
6th- TIME: it indicates when something happens.
!!! If the VERB is a verb of movement, then the order is as follows:
SUBJECT+ VERB+ PLACE+ MANNER+ TIME
!!! What happens if you want to use two expressions of time or two expressions of place together? Then the order is: 1- the most precise/ 2- the most general
