    Different uses for did,about, and should.

    Hello!
    I was wondering if there is any rule, or when it is okay or proper to use words like did, bout and should the way they are arranged in the following examples:

    Never did he say....
    The key to bringing about change....
    Should you have any....

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi, mokiro.

    I would say that the examples you have given are used if someone wants to be very polite. For example when responding to an e-mail, letter whatsoever in which one is asked about his brand's supply.

    "Should you have any additional questions relating to our products do not hesitate...."

    But I am not totally sure about it.

    best regards

    Yes, I think you are right on that one. I have seen that on formal writing too. Thank you, Maluues.
