Italian is an subject-verb-object language. Nevertheless, the SVO sequence is sometimes altered, especially for reasons of emphasis and, in literature, for reasons of style and rhythm: Italian has a relatively free word order. The subject in a sentence is usually omitted when it is a pronoun – distinctive verb conjugations make it redundant. Subject pronouns are considered emphatic when used at all.
