I know we are supposed to change the word order in a positive sentence that uses a question word. E.g: I don't know where she is.
BUT, in a book of Perrault's Fairy tales, this is what I saw: "The king came by a moment later and wished to know who was the owner of the fields".
Is that correct?
In modern English it would not be said but Perrault wrote in the 17th century and it may be that it was the correct form then.
You will need to get an "academic" to answer this!
