Reply to "On the hill a big tree stood."

Hello, EdwinJ, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

I believe GBLSU is aware that the most straightforward order of the words of this sentence is "A big tree stood on the hill." No one would dispute the grammatical soundness of that sentence. GBLSU is experimenting with alternate word orders, such as topicalization with inversion ("On the hill stood a big tree").

Exactly, thanks. what about our opinion on this thread?
