NOT A TEACHER
(1) Have you checked Mr. Michael Swan's very popular Practical
English Usage? He gives many helpful examples.
(2) Here are just a few that I found in his very good book:
(a) adjective/adverb + as + clause
(i) Cold as it was, we went out.
(ii) Bravely though they fought, they had no chance of winning.
(b) Here is a sampling of other kinds of inversions that are given
in his book:
(i) Under no circumstances can we cash cheques [checks].
(ii) She was very religious, as were most of her friends.
(iii) Were she my daughter .... (= If she were my daughter ....)
(iv) On the grass sat an enormous frog.
(v) He believed, as did all his family, that ....
(c) Here are two examples that I have just remembered:
Martha: Would you like a donut?
Tony (smiling): No, thanks. Donuts I don't need!!! I'm already
too overweight!!! (Instead of "I don't need donuts." We use inversion
to be slightly humorous.)
Ralph: I cannot understand this math problem.
Mona: Why don't you ask your uncle for help?
Ralph: Are you kidding (joking)? An [Albert] Einstein he isn't.
("He isn't an Einstein" = He isn't very intelligent.)
