- The metadata informations on the order of Subject, Verb and Object (SVO) or Subject, Object and Verb (SOV) or Object, Verb and Subject (OVS) in a sentence are often useful in faster parsing a sentence in the translation process. Various languages like Bangla, Hindi sentences normally follow SOV structure. English sentence follows SVO. However, it is not uncommon to see other forms also. We can add such markups in the following way.
+ The metadata informations on the order of Subject, Verb and Object (SVO) or Subject, Object and Verb (SOV) or Object, Verb and Subject (OVS) in a sentence are often useful in faster parsing a sentence in the translation process. The order of words in a two element sentence is same in all languages viz. subject + verb. But in a three -element or four element sentence the order of words varies from language to language. For example, the usual order of words in Bengali, Hindi and Urdu etc is: <subject> <object> <verb> or <subject> <complement> <verb>. Various Indian languages like Bangla, Hindi sentences normally follow SOV structure. English sentence follows SVO. However, it is not uncommon to see other forms also. Other sentence patterns in English: <subject> <verb> <complement> or <subject> <verb> <object> <object> or <subject> <verb> <object> <complement>. Word order in English is relatively more rigid compared to Indian Languages which are called "free word order" languages. We can add such markups in the following way.
