I'm wondering about the differences between to:
Late file the form
File the form late
Specifically, how can the grammar of the form in A1 below be described? Is an adjective modifying a verb? Is that even possible? Is "late" in "late file" an adverb?
The A2 form (with hyphen) also has many Google hits. Is a hyphen required?
More importantly, why even use A1 (or A2) when A3 seems much more natural word order? Is this simply an idiosyncratic style of legalese that can be ignored for the sake of preferring Plain English? Or is A1 somehow semantically different from A3?
Is this A1 (and A2-A3) word order used for any other adjectives, especially any outside legal contexts?
A1. If you late file the form
A2. If you late-file the form
A3. If you file your the form late
B1. If you timely file the form
B2. If you timely-file the form (I see no Google hits for this version with a hyphen.)
B3. If you file the form timely (Seems totally unnatural.)
