Look at the following sentences.
My mother put on the table a notebook.
She keeps over her head a scarf.
He writes to me a letter.
They write in notebook few sentence.
These sentences are self made. Please explain that if it is correct to say.
But I am quite sure I heard or read these type of sentences somewhere where prepositional phrases come before direct object.
'on the table' is used before object.
Please if this type of sentences exist, then please give me some example.
My mother put on the table a notebook, a ruler, some paper and a few pencils.
The longer the direct object, the more likely we are to put it at the end.
