I see both 'Missä haarukka on' and 'Missä on haarukka' are accepted. Is there any difference between the two or are they fully interchangeable?

The definiteness of the noun changes slightly depending on the word order.

"Missä haarukka on?" - Where is THE fork?

"Missä on haarukka?" - Where is A (the) fork?
