Lahu follows the general pattern of subject-object-verb. The subject can simply be defined as the origin of the action, the object is the recipient of the action, and the verb is the action.

Generally the verb is the most important part of any sentence and often the subject or object are implied and can be omitted. The following examples display some typical sentence structures with their part of speech (PoS). For now just observe the structure:
