Lesson 12 - Travelling and Transport
What is it?

Adverbials can be a lot of different words that changes the mood of the sentence, time or place indicators, or it can be a subordinate clause as in: I will help you if you'll let me.

The Rules

The word order is:

S = Subject (the do'er)
V = Verb (the action)
DO = Direct Object (what/who is 'actioned')
Adv = Adverbial (e.g. subordinate clauses or place and time indicators)
IO = Indirect Object (and to whom)
Adv = Adverbial (e.g. subordinate clauses or place and time indicators)

Examples
Jeg giver hende først blomsterne når hun siger undskyld
SVIOAdvDOAdv
[lit: I give her first the flowers when she says sorry]

But be careful!!!

If you want to say Jeg giver hende blomsterne i morgen! and change the adverbial (time indicator) to the front of the sentence i.e. I morgen giver jeg hende blomsterne: The verb comes first!!!!!!
