Topic: Preposing/postposing

These resources look at how word order can be varied to present information in different ways. We can move elements to an earlier position in the clause than usual (preposing) or to a later position than usual (postposing). For example, instead of I really like those ones, we could prepose those ones to the beginning and say Those ones, I really like.
