10.2 - Unmarked word order

Putting it all together, the unmarked word order is:

CCONJ/AUX + CLITICS + [AC] + SUBJECT + [AC] + IO + DO + AC + VERB

Where CCONJ/AUX is clausal conjunction or auxuliary, AC is adverbial complement, IO and DO are respectively indirect and direct object.

It is worth repeating that anything but the verb is optional, and that clausal conjunctions and clitic pronouns are rather common, so that a minimal clause would be in the form of:

[CCONJ + CLITICS] + VERB
