Abstract : We attempt to show that the assignment of appropriate " types " to German verbs will determine the correct word order in German sentences. The types are elements of the " free pregroup " generated by a partially ordered set of basic types, pregroups being a generalization of partially ordered groups. We look at a selection of direct and indirect sentences, including questions and subordinate clauses, but we hope that our method will extend beyond the fragment of German grammar investigated here.
