According to Wikipedia, this is a hyperbaton:
"Whom god wishes to destroy, he first makes mad" — Euripides
Is that right, and if so, why? My native language is Swedish, but I speak English fluently. Anyway, why isn't the following considered hyperbaton too?
It's not that hard, I suppose.
It's very common in Swedish, which may be the reason why it sounds so natural to me, but still, it's rather common in English too.
