Place Manner Time is a term used in linguistic typology to state the general order of adpositional phrases in a language's sentences: "to the store by car yesterday". It would seem that it is common among SVO languages. English, French, and Spanish belong to this category.


An example in English is: I will drive to the store in my car tomorrow, where to the store is the destination, in my car is the method of travel, and tomorrow is the temporal phrase. (The other elements of the sentence are irrelevant for this example.)


The other adpositional order is Time Manner Place (e.g, German and Japanese)

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Time (1388 words)
To Kant and his followers time is an a priori form, a natural disposition by virtue of which the inner sense clothes the acts of the external senses, and consequently the phenomena which these acts represent, with the distinctive characteristics of time.
Of this quantitative increment time is the representation.
As the parts of time, he says, are to each other in the relation of cause to effect, and as the cause is essentially antecedent to its effect, it is impossible to reverse this relation.
Signtronix (2950 words)
In other words, it is correct to state that government may place reasonable time, place and manner restrictions on speech that takes place in a public forum, but these types of restrictions must be equipped without regard to the content of the speech.(22) This is to ensure that there is no abuse of power.
Time is simply defined as when a message may be displayed; place is where the message may be displayed, and how the message is presented is the manner of the conveyance.
And the ordinance was not genuinely concerned with the place (front lawns) or the manner (signs) of the speech, but rather proscribes particular types of signs based on their content because the township feared their "primary" effect - that they would cause those receiving the information to act upon it.
