How does New work?

The function of the New is to present new information which has NOT already been given in the previous text. It elaborates on the Theme of the same sentence. To do this clearly and cohesively, the New must be positioned at the end of the sentence either in, or after the finite Verb.

Readers always expect to find new information at the end of a sentence, that is, after the Theme. A paragraph is unclear or not cohesive, if new information is not in this final position.
