    Smile Re: Inversion

    Inversion form - verb + sub
    when we need to write inversion, we have to switch the position of verb and subject. If verb is verb to be, it is no problem we put verb to be in front of the subject.
    If verb to do, we have to change do,did,does according to the tense.

    That is all i know
    If there is any mistake, everyone can correct it!!!

    Re: Inversion

    same as thread NOT UNTIL. A negative element at the beginning

    only, seldom, rarely, few, little ... verb - subject

    Little CAN HE do for me

    because LITTLE means NOT MUCH.
