inversion Are these sentences correct?
I tried some inversions with sentences on here: "http://www.usingenglish.com/weblog/archives/000011.html#hcd1UKubPKJOlhvo.99"
1. S-V-C structure: Spanish people are really noisy.
I think the inversion would be Really noisy are Spanish people. (C-V-S)
Is this correct sentence?
2. Normal S-V-C structure: It may be dry weather, but it isn't warm.
The sentence was complex sentence linked by conjunction but, so I didn't change the next clause.
Is it correct to if the inversion is 'Dry weather it may be, but it isn't warm.'? (C-S-V, conjunction S-V-C)
3.Normal S-V-C structure: Will you meet the person of your dreams tomorrow?
I have no idea how to make inversion of interrogative sentence.
I made 'Meet the person of your dreams tomorrow will you?', but it doesn't look like inversion.
How can I make inversion of 'Will you meet the person of your dreams tomorrow?'?

1 Not natural
2 Dry it may be sounds better to me. However, I don't see why there is a contrast between dryness and warmth.
3 It would most likely be Meet you.
PS, though I am credited as the writer, I didn't write this. And some of these examples have more to do with poetry than natural English IMO.
