    one more doubt

    Hi there. Should it be right to say "uncertain has been the roads I´ve pointed to go" "faulty has been the words that I´ve been told".
    Thank yu very much. A good Christmas and a happy new year for everybody. Domdomingues2003.

    They remind me of poetry. "The roads I've pointed to go have been uncertain" is what people say, but those you mentioned are not incorrect.

    That sort of word order can be used, but the verb is wrong:
    Uncertain have been the roads...

    I'm not sure what is meant by 'I have pointed to go'.
