    Simple Present: Easy question

    Hello,
    I feel awful about it, but I was not 100% sure about the correct positions of the words.
    Example:
    Why doesn't she work here anymore?
    Is this sentence really true?
    It sounds very confuse to me.
    I would like to write Why doesn't work she here anymore, but I guess the 1st example is the true form...
    And if I would break the doesn't, would it be like this:
    Why does she not work here anymore? ?

    Thanks for any help and sorry for this ridiculous question...

    Why doesn't she work here anymore? This is correct.

    And if I would break the doesn't, would it be like this:
    Why does she not work here anymore? ? Yes it would.
