Student or Learner
I have a few questions about inversions. I'd appreciate any help
1) When - in what situations - do we use inversion with and when without auxiliary verbs? How does it function (with respect to word order)?
2) When can we just invert the subject and predicate? When do we have to insert the auxiliary?
e.g On a hill in front of them stood a great castle. --> why not 'did a great castle stay?'
3) How and when do we use inversion with present tenses? I've encountered very few exaples of it in my learning so far.
4) How do modal verbs affect the inversion? Do we just invert the subject and the modal?
Thanks in advance,
but I hoped for a more detailed reply to the questions listed above..
