When an inversion happens with an adverb in the beginning, why does it have the structure of "Adverb+verb+subject" not "Adverb+subject+verb"? To emphasize the subject of "the sun"?
ex)Out came the sun through the break of clouds.
I meant why the order is "Ad+V+S" not "Ad+S+V".
Of course you can say: On the hill, a nice house stands
Or On the grass, a big frog is sitting.
However, I think when you want to emphasize the adverbial phrases and use them at the beginning of a sentence it's better to use the inversion form : Adverb + intransitive verb + Subject . This type of emphasizing inversion is used with intransitive verbs only. So it's better to say On the grass is sitting a big frog.
I already know what you said. I meant not the way it is, but the reason why it is that way. If there's no specific reason, I will give up investigating on that.
I feel exactly the same way you do when I speak or think in Korean. I don't even know how Korean grammar goes, nor do I wish to know about it in detail as I'm already a fluent Korean speaker. Korean is like naturally breathing for me, but English is not.
I'm a humble tutor, and whenever I explain some complicated grammar to my students, if I show some impressive reason or analysis, they can understand and memorize it a lot better than merely reading the lines of grammar books. I don't care about logic a lot as I have accepted a lot of things as they are, but for foreigners who don't have chances to acquire English in a natural environment as native speakers, their learning is quite artificial and dull, so it may be helpful (but not everything, I know you have to take many things without logic) to tell them any impressive logic.
Sadly, logic (impressive or otherwise) is frequently conspicuous in its absence in the English language.
