I have seen the following sentence in some article:
Where some understanding exists of how brain processes produce mental phenomena-for example, pain, thirst, vision, smell-it is clear that specific neurobiological processes are involved.
It seems that the original form of the bold phrase is is:
- Where some understanding of how brain processes produce mental phenomena exists
I wonder whether it is natural, especially in formal writing, to place any long phrase at the end of a sentence/clause, even if it is a part of an "of-phrase"?
