Subject-verb inversion is a feature of English common in formal or literary styles where the subject of a sentence follows the verb rather than the reverse. This section explains the rules that govern the various forms of subject-verb inversion. It includes subject-auxiliary inversion where the verb being moved is an auxiliary verb.

You already know how to use question tags, don’t you? Master the advanced use of these handy grammatical structures with our rules and exercises.

Do you want to understand why we sometimes leave a verb out after an auxiliary verb? Of course you do. Sometimes leaving out the verb that follows an auxiliary verb can improve a sentence by making it more concise. This advanced level grammar lesson will show you how to do it correctly.
