Sentence Order - Time Location etc.
Does anyone know if there is a certain order for a sentence where time and location is concerned? One of my students insists that there is a specific order - taught to him by his english teacher (non-native speaker) in highschool.
For me, I think it depends on the emphasis you want to put on the sentence:
1. Meet me at 2:00 in front of City Hall.
2. Meet me in front of City Hall at 2:00.
Both sound correct to me. I'm in Germany, and I think they have certain orders for sentences, so they may be transferring German rules to English. Anyone else have ideas on this?
BTW -I'm new around here. Hi to everyone from a Canadian teaching in Germany!
Re: Sentence Order - Time Location etc.
Both are fine - doesn't really make any difference to emphasis either.
