 Inversion is a grammatical structure in which the normal order of words is reversed, typically for emphasis or to form a question. For example, in the sentence "I never thought I'd see her again," the normal word order would be "I thought I'd never see her again." By inverting the subject and verb, the emphasis is placed on the unexpected nature of the event.

In English, inversion is often used in questions, especially those beginning with "why," "what," "how," "when," or "where." For example: "Why is he here?" "What did she say?" "How did you know?" "When did it happen?" "Where are they going?"

Inversion can also be used in other types of sentences for emphasis or to create a more formal or literary tone. For example: "Never have I seen such beauty." "Only once did I make that mistake." "Little did I know what was in store."

Inversion is an important concept in grammar and is used in a variety of contexts in English. It is often taught as part of basic language lessons and is an important aspect of English syntax.

Here are a few more examples of inversion in English:


"Why did you leave?"

"Where have you been?"

"How often do you see her?"

"What did he say?"

"When will you be back?"


"Never have I felt such happiness."

"Only once did I see him cry."

"Little did I realize the impact it would have."

"Rarely do I get to see him."

"Seldom do I eat out"

Formality or literary tone:

"In the garden, not a single flower was to be found."

"Into the woods, I wandered, not knowing where I was going."

"On the table, there lay a letter from him."

"Besides the fireplace, she sat and read."

"Above the clouds, the sky was bright and clear."
