PINUER, Claudio y OTEIZA, Teresa. Principles, competition and annulments in the order of sentence constituents. Rev. signos [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.78, pp. 83-99. ISSN 0718-0934. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-09342012000100006.
In this article we present a revision of the 12 principles of sentence order of great disciplinary ubiquity, which are explored regarding their grammatical, informative and cognitive properties. These principles are systematized in a table of linear attributes formed by the most representative features of each level. The principles are analysed from a SVO pattern in the di/transitive sentence, in which the parameters that specify the position of argumental complements according to its de/activation type are described. The study has allowed us to verify that the principles apply according to the informative choices, grammatical properties and cognitive requirements. It is possible to highlight that the order of sentence constituents is the result of the interaction between the parameters in a process of reciprocal complementarity and annulment.
