German: Word Order With Adverbs



Start mastering word order in German, specifically the placement of adverbs with this explanation from Deutsche Welle:

 Für die Stellung von Adverbien im Satz gibt es keine festen Regeln.

Normalerweise stehen sie aber im Hauptsatz (Aussagesatz) HINTER DEM FINITEN VERB (a) oder AM SATZANFANG (b).

Beispiel:
a) Ich war GESTERN sehr müde.
b) GESTERN war ich sehr müde.

a) Ich mache IMMER etwas falsch.
b) IMMER mache ich etwas falsch.

a) Ich komme GERNE zu dir.
b) GERNE komme ich zu dir.

Bei mehreren Adverbien oder adverbialen Bestimmungen innerhalb eines Satzes gilt zunächst freie (weglassbare) vor obligatorischen (notwendigen) Bestimmungen:


 Die Sitzung dauerte gestern (frei) wegen der Krise (frei) zwei Stunden länger (obligatorisch).

Bei freien Adverbialbestimmungen untereinander ist die Anordnung in der Regel T K M L = TEMPORAL (wann? wie lange? wie oft?), KAUSAL (warum?), MODAL (wie?), LOKAL (wo?).

Beispiel:
Er lernt heute (T) wegen seiner Prüfung (K) besonders fleißig (M) in der Bibliothek (L).
Sie schlief gestern Abend (T) vor Aufregung (K) sehr schlecht (M).
Ich komme morgen (T) mit Verspätung (M) in Köln (L) an.

Bei Sätzen mit OBJEKTEN und ADVERBIEN steht die adverbiale Bestimmung häufiger HINTER dem Objekt, kann aber oft auch davor stehen. Ist das Objekt jedoch ein Pronomen, muss die adverbiale Bestimmung hinter dem Objekt stehen

Akkusativobjekt:

Sie hat IMMER ihre Tasche dabei. - Sie hat ihre Tasche IMMER dabei.
Aber nur: Sie hat sie IMMER dabei.

Sie trifft ihren Bruder HEUTE ABEND - Sie trifft HEUTE ABEND ihren Bruder.
Aber nur: Sie trifft ihn HEUTE ABEND.

Dativobjekt:

Er hilft seinem Vater MORGEN. - Er hilft MORGEN seinem Vater.
Aber nur: Er hilft ihm MORGEN.
