    Re: Please tell me when you are leaving LA. VS Please tell me when are you leaving

    Note that the subject/verb reversal generally only occurs in the interrogative. If there is no question mark, it's not the interrogative.

    When are you leaving?
    Please tell me when you are leaving.

    Who are you?
    Please tell me who you are.

    Why are you doing that?
    Please tell me why you are doing that.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
