During a class discussion on syntax as a regular feature language, and
particularly the organization of subject, verb, and object, one of my
students claimed that Russian doesn't seem to him to have any regular
syntactic organization whatsoever, or at least no regular organization
of some order of SVO. I told him it was unlikely that that was the
case, but that I would check with my colleagues on the Linguist List.
So, the question is twofold:
1. Isn't Russian syntax regular in general?
2. Doesn't it have a regular order for subject, verb, object?
