Can word order in Greek be used to emphasize the point one seeks to make?

For example--

if I want to make the point that I personally (not my wife, my neighbor, or
anyone else) see a man, should I say BLEPW ANQRWPON, but if I wanted to make
the point that I see a man (and not a dog, a deer, or anything else), should

Should one read the NT with this in mind?
