You know, in Persian language we usually change the place of words together. In other words all sentences above can be correct, but some are better for conversation and some are better for poem! dokhtar be mard goft (Subject Object Verb) is better than others for conversation.

Er... what? The "target" of a sentence is never in dative case. Are you talking about accusative?

It virtually works the same way as "to" does in English.
