New information

Posted by K Yone on May 22, 2001

Hi again!

I understand that new information tends to go to the last part of sentence. However, an adverb (phrase) may have new information when it is used at the beginning of the sentence. Does 'out of all the lies' have new information in sentence 1? How about sentence 2? I wonder what is the difference between these following sentences?

1. Out of all the lies comes one great and simple truth.
2. One great and simple truth comes out of all the lies.

I appreciate for your help.

Sincerely,

K Yone
