Although some subject-ver-object languages in West Africa, the best known is Ewe, use post-positions in substantive sentences, the vast majority of them, like English, have prepositions. Most subject-ver-object languages are classified according to the noun, but a significant minority, including the post-positional SVO languages of West Africa, Hmong-Miens, some Sino-Tibetan languages, and European languages such as Swedish, Danish, Lithuanian, and Latvian have first-mentioned genes  (as one would expect in an SOV language). Subject-verb-object languages almost always place relative sentences according to the nouns that modify them and the adverberal subordinations before the clause is changed, with varieties of Chinese being notable exceptions. . . .
