word order Mandarin Chinese: time - manner - place

 
 
Reply Thu 23 Jan, 2014 12:49 pm
So I want to know where to place adverbs, like 只,就,少. SO I looked up on the internet that common word order is: tile -manner - place. But do 只,就,少 count as manners. So if I have the sentence: on monday I only ate fish close to the sea: would that be: 我星期一在近海吃鱼 or 我星期一只在近海只吃鱼?
And what if its negative : "on monday I didn't only eat fish close to the sea " and:" On monday I ate fish not close to the sea"? Thanks in advance

@dude0103,
on monday I only ate fish close to the sea :星期一我在海边就吃了些鱼。
on monday I didn't only eat fish close to the sea:星期一我在海边不仅仅吃了些鱼 。
On monday I ate fish not close to the sea :星期一我不是在海边吃的鱼。

@charliechenchen,
on monday I only ate fish close to the sea :星期一我在海边就吃了些鱼。
on monday I didn't only eat fish close to the sea:星期一我在海边不仅仅吃了些鱼 。
On monday I ate fish not close to the sea :星期一我不是在海边吃的鱼。

另一种表达方式:
1) 周一那天,我在海边就吃了点鱼,没吃别的
2)周一那天,我在海边不仅仅吃了些鱼,还吃了些别的
3)周一那天,我不是在海边吃的鱼,是在其他地方。
