    Tania Sachdev

    Tania Sachdev is no stranger to the camera. But never before has she been photographed as much as over the past couple of weeks in the city."

    I think above sentence should be

    " Tania Sachdev is no stranger to the camera. But never before she has been photographed as much as over the past couple of weeks in the city."

    Am I wrong?
    Please give answer in detail?

    Re: Tania Sachdev

    You are wrong.

    'She has never been photographed before' changes to 'Never before has she been photographed'.

    Re: Tania Sachdev

    Please give your threads more helpful titles. "Never before she has?" would have been good for this.

    'She has never been photographed before' 'Never before has she been photographed'.

    Second sentence is emphatic sentence?
    Please give me more ideas to understand these type of sentence.

    In a sentence that begins with a negative adverb, the word order of the subject and the first auxiliary verb is changed.
