    Re: inverted word order

    Hi,

    Certain sentence types require inverted word order, in which a verb is placed before the subject. These types include interrogative sentences, that begin with 'when', 'where', 'what', and conditional clauses that begin with negative or restrictive words such as never, rarely, scarcely, hardly ever, and not only.

    For example: Rarely am I late for my classes.

    Some examples:

    Hardly a week goes by without a distaster happening in some part of the world.
    Seldom have I read such a good book.
    Little did we know about what was going on at that time.
    Rich as you may be, you can't buy sincere friends.
    Had I known who she was, I would not have come on her that hard.
