This has been bugging me for a while:

"Das Objekt, aufgefunden in den Keller gewurden der Oper, funktioniert noch"

Why is gewurden smack in the middle of den Keller der Oper? (It feels wrong to me -- why isn't gewurden last?

...or oh oh oh is gewurden part of the noun phrase? I was thinking it was part of the verb phrase (aufgefunden gewurden) but if it's the noun phrase -- is that, like, "the cellar that used to be (but isn't any more) part of the opera house ?

Hilfe bitte! (Is there a German equivalent of halp? Halfe? Lol)

This sentence is wrong, grammatically.

It should be either:

"Das Objekt, aufgefunden im Keller der Oper,
funktioniert noch" - this is grammatically right, but no one would naturally speak like that.

Or:

Das Objekt, welches im Keller der Oper aufgefunden wurde, funktioniert noch"

Also, it's geworden, not gewurden.
