I'm discussing English grammar "Inversion" with my Korean friends.
Ex. A man sat under a tree. ---> Under a tree sat a man. (o)
A man was sitting under a tree. ----> Under a tree was sitting a man. (x)
I think "sat" can be used but "was sitting" can't in the inversion sentence form above.
Am I right?
Thanks in advance,
I don't see the second as absolutely wrong, though it is not a very likely sentence.
