In linguistic typology, place–manner–time is a general order of adpositional phrases in a language's sentences: "to the store by car yesterday". It would seem that it is common among SVO languages. English, French, and Spanish belong to this category.
An example in English is: "I will drive to the store in my car tomorrow", where to the store is the destination, in my car is the method of travel, and tomorrow is the temporal phrase. (The other elements of the sentence are irrelevant for this example.)
