While many purport that Old English had free word order, this is not quite true, as there were conventions for the positioning of subject, object and verb in clause.

Likewise, verbs are neuter when used as nouns.

There may be two objects in one sentence, one direct, the other in­direct, and the difference is seen in the case forms; the direct object is in the accusative, and the indirect in the dative, as in: fela spella him sæʒdon pa Beormas'the Permians told him many stories', sinʒme hwæthwuʒu'sing me something'.
