@Native english speakers If I say 'Today morning was the last delivery', will it sound wrong in English?

Thanks in advance :)

Yes, this sounds wrong.

This morning is a much better translation.

Is "This morning was the last delivery" (the given English sentence) correct? For me it doesn't follow the SVO order, but maybe you can say that anyway! :)

Yes, it's a perfectly natural-sounding English sentence to my (native English speaker) ears. In fact, that's exactly how I translated it when presented with the German.

As spoken English, it's the type of thing that people would say - it sounds fine. I wouldn't recommend it as written English, though - 'The last delivery was this morning' reads much better.

This morning was the final delivery is surely correct, no?

I'm a brit and it sounds off to me... Surely "The last delivery was this morning." is better?

I'm wondering if this should be taken as the final delivery or as the most recent one.

Sadly, German is word-poor here. "The final delivery was this morning", "The latest delivery was this morning" and "The last delivery was this morning" are all "Heute Morgen war die letzte Lieferung".

I think,

"The last/final delivery was this morning" is correct & sounds more good.

BUT when we say: This morning was the last/final delivery". We emphasize on "This morning".
