- No sooner had I left the house than it started raining.
Perhaps you are taking that sentence too literally. In any case that sentence means the same as As soon as I left the house it started raining. In other words, a couple of minutes after he went outside the rain started coming down.
Is it means "no sooner than it started raining"?
- Does it mean "no sooner than it started raining"?
The word had indicates that the action happened in the past before another action.Why do we put had in this position?
(You can't say we be rained or we still be rained.)
