Just as the subject says: what is the difference between the word 'inverse' and 'reverse'?
Inverse is opposite in order or proportion. In language inversion is when the predicate comes before the subject. So it's about order.
Oh, that kind of order.
PS That last post wasn't meant to suggest I knew in detail where the discussion was leading. My maths is 'Best Before End May 1968'. It was just that I recognized what sort of 'order' was involved; it was an 'order of magnitude' sort of reply.
