I am learning Chinese on my own and I find myself getting the word order wrong on some sentences.
For example: 我們在一起合作很多年了 I sometimes mistakenly use this word order: 我們合作在一起很過年了
I realize this is a very basic question, but could somebody explain why 在一起 must come before 合作 in this sentence?
Also, what is the grammatical rule called, if I want to read up on this? In other words, what do I search for in order to find the grammar rule that applies?
