1. He no more runs fast.
2. He can no more fast.
3. He is no more a baby.
4. He runs fast no more.
-------------------------
What about the word order of 'no more'?
#1,2,and 3 seem to be correct. What about #4? Can we put 'no more' at the end of a sentence?

  1. 1 is not good, but 4 is fine.

    2 is incomplete and doesn't make sense.

    3 will be OK if you move "no more" to the end of the sentence.

    1. He runs fast no more.
