Assunto:  May I invert the order like in Portuguese?
 
Mensagem:  For example, in portuguese I can say:


A pipoca saltou por todo o laboratorio;
Por todo o laboratorio a pipoca saltou;

Is it possible to do the same in English? (in grammar terms, not just about trying to sound poetic ou "intelectual")

And what about:

I should do it.

Should I do it (not interrogative)

Thank you.
