Some time ago there was a discussion of Greek word order. I noticed this
book on the Scottish Academic Press Web Site (URL given below). I have not
seen this book, but the summar looks interesting.

Scottish Classical Studies III

Classical Greek shows a remarkable flexibility of word-order and it has
long been found difficult to define the ways in which the order of words
is restricted in practice. This study shows postpositives tend to occur in
certain positions in relation to verbs and nouns in a sentence. The authors
primarily examined are Thucydides, Plato and Demosthenes.
