The lesson about buying train tickets had the following sentence:
From the little I have read or understood, the 把 acts as a marker, allowing the object of the sentence to be put ahead of the verb. What I don't get is why a speaker would choose to do this? Is a change of emphasis being achieved? Or is the resulting sentence aesthetically more satisfying that any alternative. On that point, what would he alternatives be in this case?
I avoided adding this question to the lesson itself, as I felt the point was general enough.
