Re: inverted word order
Certain sentence types require inverted word order, in which a verb is placed before the subject. These types include interrogative sentences, that begin with 'when', 'where', 'what', and conditional clauses that begin with negative or restrictive words such as never, rarely, scarcely, hardly ever, and not only.
For example: Rarely am I late for my classes.
