German grammar

Pivot pattern of affirmative sentences.

In the affirmative sentence, for example, the object or the adverb may come first. The subject is then in the third position, verb is in second place. If the judgment is complex, the second half of the judgment goes to the end of the sentence. As you can see, verb always takes second place in the affirmative.

The pivot pattern highlights whichever part of the sentence is in the first position.
