Thai words and their origins

I do understand เกิดบางที่ผู้ชายบอกว่า... but I wonder, would it be wrong to say just "บางผู้ชาย"? If that is the case, why?
Many thanks

Re: เกิดบางที่ผู้ชาย

Perhaps it would be helpful if you could provide some context for that sentence. However, let me comment.

1. Is the word in your clause "บางที่" (someplace) or "บางที" (sometimes)?
2. Almost certainly บาง is not modifying ผู้ชาย as in "บางผู้ชาย". Even if it were, the grammatical structure would be "ผู้ชายบางคน" (some men).
3. If the phrase were "เกิดบางที" (sometimes it happens [that]). Might this be the usage implied?

Hope to hear from you soon.
