In statements the verb usually follows the subject:
eg. He doesn’t like sushi.
Sometimes we invert the subject and verb so that the verb comes before the subject.
We use inversion:
– after so, neither, nor
eg. I have to start work at 9am. So do I.
– in the phrases Here comes/come + noun and There goes/go + noun
eg. Here come the police!
– in question tags
eg. You studied law, didn’t you?
We do not invert:
– in embedded questions within questions
eg. Where is the station? —> Do you know where the station is?
– in embedded questions within sentences
eg.What’s her family like? —> It’s hard to imagine what her family’s like.
– when we use a question word to introduce a relative clause in certain phrases
eg. I don’t know what his problem is.
– in indirect speech
eg. Are you going to the party tonight? —> He asked me if I was going to the party tonight.
