Abstract: The Korean language is an agglutinating language belonging to the Ural-Altaic language family, which follows a subject-object-verb-structure. The verbs are followed by suffixes which denote tense, aspect, mode and honorific forms.
Nouns, pronouns and other non-verbal parts of speech are followed by particles which mark the role of the corresponding parts of speech in the sentence. The Korean language does not possess prepositions. Thus, the major part of grammatical relations and other functional connections, which in English are marked by prepositions as well as subordinating or coordinating conjunctions, is expressed by postpositional particles.
The marking of subjects by postpositions allows subjects to appear in different parts of a sentence other than the initial position.
A typical Korean sentence follows the subsequent pattern:

1st Time adverbials
2nd Local adverbial (Adverbial of Place)
3rd Subject-Noun phrase
4th Dative-Noun phrase
5th Modal adverbials
6th Object-Noun phrase
7th Verb
