It is often accepted and sometimes explicitly stated that both the marking of agreement and the order of words constitute a viable alternative to the morphological case with regard to a subset of the functions that fall marking can perform. This article examines the extent to which this is actually the case and how the three forms of marking interact between languages. First, it provides an overview of the main functions of marking, agreement and case order, and then takes into account how the marker interacts with word order and agreement. It examines the link between case marking and the order of the constituents of the Basic Church first established by Greenberg (1966), namely the taste for marking fundamental grammatical relations in languages with the basic order of the VPA and the scarcity of case classification in basic AVP-order languages. The article also examines the most important grammatical relationships, including the ditransitative clauses found, emphasizing the differences in the type of overlap in the case and the agreement marks by verbal arguments.

Sometimes the models are more complex: some Germanic languages have secondary sentences, but The order of the words V2 in the main clauses, the order of the sVO words is the most common. Using the above guidelines, the unmarked word order is then SVO. Some languages do not have a fixed word chain and often use a significant amount of morphological marking to illustrate the roles of arguments.
However, some languages use a fixed word chain, even if they offer a degree of marking that supports the free order of words. Similarly, some languages with a free order, such as certain varieties of datooga, combine the free order of words with a lack of morphological distinction between arguments. Latin prose often follows the order of the words „Subject, Direct Object, Indirect Object, Adv, Verb”, but it is more a directive than a rule. Adjectives in most cases go before Nov that they change, but some categories, such as those that determine or specify (z.B. Via Appia „Appian Way”), usually follow the Nostun. In classical Latin poetry, poets followed the order of words very easily to obtain a desired scansion. In the following table, the order of words measured by Dryer is displayed. In the 2005 study, 1228 languages were surveyed and 1,377 languages were studied in the 2013 updated study. The percentage was not reported in his studies. Hammarstrom (2016) calculated the constituent orders of 5252 languages in two ways.
His first method of directly counting languages yielded results similar to those of Dryer`s studies, suggesting that SOV and SVO are distributed almost in the same way. However, in the history by linguistic family, the distribution showed that the majority of families had a sOV structure, which means that a small number of families include the SVO structure.
