Basic word order in English [Subject + Verb + Object]

Ex: Namuuna likes Boloro.

Subject = Namuuna

Verb = likes

Object = Boloro

Word order is very important in English because there is very little "case marking" --- a subject and an object have the same form (except for pronouns).

For example, the sentence "Namuuna likes Boloro." does not have the same meaning as "Boloro likes Namuuna."
The Subject (the person who "likes") comes before the verb.

The Object (the person who receives the action of the verb) comes after the verb.
