Why can't it be 本をとしょかんからかりました。


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ginkkou

The object is usually placed right before the verb.

@luckeytree

I recommend 'report a problem'.

This is correct, then? I like the way it sounds, kind of musical.

本をとしょかんからかりました。 としょかんから本をかりました。 I think both are okay.

I may not understand your words. 'kind of musical' is literally?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Boringjorn

Literally? Maybe. I mean it sounds kind of like music. There is a rhythmic assonance to「本を図書館」 and 「からかりました」


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sora_Japan

I see. It is common sentence for me. Therefore I thought if 'kind of musical' may have idiom or so. :)

It can. Marked correct for me.
