Direction and Word Order in Persian
Persian Word Order is different from English. In English we usually put the subject first, and then verb phrase, then the object or adverb phrase. This is called Subject-Verb-Object word order, and we say English is an SVO language .
The apple is in the basket.
subject verb adverb phrase
In Persian, you will typically see sentences like this (read right to left):
[it]is in the basket [The] apple
verb adverb phrase subject
سیب در سبد است
Thus, Persian is called an SOV language. Reading from right to left you will see Subject, then predicate, then verb.
Are teacher you
ﺷما ﻣﻌﻠﻢ هستید
hit his friend he
او دوستش را زد
