- "And thus began the chain of mistakes that led us here." -Varys
This sentence is from Games of Thrones. (the link: http://www.imdb.com/news/ni58498665/)
I would like to ask why an inversion is used after the word 'thus' in the above sentence. I would also ask if we can apply the structure to such words as 'therefore, hence, etc' or not.
It's a structure frequently used in literary/poetical contexts, but not in everyday conversation.
You can use it after 'hence' and 'whence' but offhand I'm not sure about 'therefore' or any other adverbs.
