How should the phrase social disparity be used in a sentence?
There was great social disparity between A and B.
The social disparity was great between A and B.
You can say either.
I just find The social disparity was great between A and B strange because I wouldn't split disparity and between A and B (So I'd say The social disparity between A and B was great). I can't explain why though and not being a native speaker of English I might be wrong here.
