German sentence structure is somewhat more complex than that of many other European languages, with phrases regularly inverted for both questions and subordinate phrases. Generally the main sentence structure rule to remember is that the verb is always the second and last element.
Famous quotes containing the words structure, german and/or sentence:
“... the structure of our public morality crashed to earth. Above its grave a tombstone read, Be toleranteven of evil. Logically the next step would be to say to our commonwealths criminals, I disagree that its all right to rob and murder, but naturally I respect your opinion. Tolerance is only complacence when it makes no distinction between right and wrong.”
—Sarah Patton Boyle, U.S. civil rights activist and author. The Desegregated Heart, part 2, ch. 2 (1962)
“The German language speaks Being, while all the others merely speak of Being.”
—Martin Heidegger (18891976)
“Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?”
—Bible: New Testament, Luke 23:40.
