In Finnish, it's no matter is it "missä Sveitsi on" or "missä on Sveitsi". It's same.

      Missä Sveitsi on is not quite the Same as Missä on Sveitsi. The latter is like looking specifically so where or like you have lost something but the former is geographic such as where is Switzerland, and thus both should be accepted

      Do you often lose Switzerland somewhere and have to look for it? :)

      "Missä on Sveitsi?" is mire fluent when asking a question (like the case is here). It definitively should NOT be rejected!

      I get this sentence construction wrong every single time! Why can I not remember this??? (Don't need an answer. Just needed to vent.)
