@NeilCoffey Isn't 1(b) in your example a case of bad sentence construction?

@MarkBeadles I don't see any prepositional phrase in this. For a counter example, I need a one word verb, which is not intransitive and is followed immediately by a prepositional phrase.

@tchrist: I came across this statement somewhere and couldn't find any suitable counter example for it. I came across it while forming rules for a computational model which parses data to form sub-categorization frames for verbs.

Could anyone give me a sentence as a counter-example to my statement which consists of only one verb and strictly follows the subject-verb-object order?
