es it mean that

Then does VP,NP(S),NP(S) mean that a verb and an adverbial are positioned
next to each other in the default word order? Is the default word order
within a verb phrase V Adv rather than Adv V?

If the default word order is not so useful, it seems that there is no
to the freeness of word order in Greek. Is there no constraint to word
in Greek?
