Categories: Linguistic typology In linguistic typology, Subject Object Verb (SOV) is the type of languages in which the subject, object, and verb of a sentence appear (usually) in that order.
The relation between the thinking subject and the object thought is analogous to the grammatical antithesis of the same terms: the " subject" of a verb is the person or thing from which the action proceeds, while the " object," direct or indirect, is the person or thing affected.

A nominative-absolutive language is one that marks the subject of a transitive verb or a voluntary subject of an intransitive verb distinctly from the object of a transitive verb or an involuntary subject of an intransitive verb.
A verb is a part of speech that usually denotes action (bring, read), occurrence (to decompose (itself), to glitter), or a state of being (exist, live, soak, stand).
In linguistics, the object of a transitive verb is one of its core arguments, which generally represents the target of the verbs action.

 Grammar Gaffes and Faux Pas: Writing in the Active Voice
Generally, sentences written in the active voice are easier to understand because the subject of the verb performs the action or causes the action denoted by the verb.
We use the passive voice when the focus of the sentence is on the object instead of the subject or when the subject of the sentence is general or unknown to the writer.
With most verbs, the simple past tense is created by adding “ed.” Examples: Live, Lived Date, Dated Love, Loved Regular and Irregular Verbs: Verbs are subdivided into two groups (regular verbs and irregular verbs) on the basis of how their past tense and past participles are formed.

The words which modify or describe the subject and verb of the sentence are diagrammed by placing them on slanted lines beneath the words which they modify.
The direct object is placed on the primary horizontal line to the right of the verb and separated from the verb by a vertical line, which does not descend below the line according to the following pattern.
To diagram a prepositional phrase, the preposition is placed on a slanted line beneath the subject or verb which the phrase modifies, the object of the preposition is placed on a horizontal line below the primary horizontal, and any modifiers of the object are placed on slanted lines beneath the object of the preposition.

 Chapter 2: Word order
When the subject of the verb is a pronoun in English, the Lebanese equivalent is the verb alone.
Even though the verb precedes the subject as a general rule, I notice that very short sentences like the one I used as an example are usually inverted, i.e we'd lean more towards saying "Lana taraket".
As the verb "to leave" is transitive (meaning it can take an object), and a verb's object comes after it just like the subject, we can't be sure out of context that Lana is a subject and not an object.

A reflexive verb is a verb whose agent performs an action that is directed to itself.
The reflexive object for the verbs in this category is normally understood which means it is usually omitted in the sentence.

Once you have determined who/what is the subject and who is the indirect object, follow the basic structure: prepositional phrase+verb+subject.
Move around the subject, verb and prepositional phrase as groupings, rather than as isolated words.
That means to move the subject together with its adjectives, articles, etc., the verb with the indirect object pronoun, and the prepositional phrase with all its components.

 "Gustar" and Similar Verbs
Whenever you have an action or actions as the subject, you should always conjugate the verb in the 3rd person singular, even if the previous subject remains in the sentence.
You must also keep in mind that, when dealing with an object (not a person or verb), the object must be defined by the use of articles (el/la/los/las; un/una/unos/unas), possesives (mi, tu, su, etc.) or by demonstratives (este/esta/estos/estas; ese/esa, etc.).
Note how some things like the subject and its adjective, the IO pronoun and verb, and the "a" preposition plus the names remain together and act as groups.
