An inverted sentence switches the placement of the verb before the subject of a sentence as if in a question. Here are some examples of inverted sentences.

Interrogative sentences require this word order. Although in interrogative sentences there is a helping verb with the main verb, so the subject goes between the helping verb and the main verb. Ex: Did the man go home? Do you have any money? Have you seen my dog? Are you going to the movies? The verbs can and may do not use helping verbs in the interrogative. Ex: Can I go to the movies? May we have some cake? The verb to be in simple present and past does not use a helping verb in the interrogative. Ex: Is he your brother? Are they students here? Was she at school today?

The English language is full of hundreds of thousands usable words, all with one specific purpose: to communicate. That communication greatly depends not just on the words you use, but on the order in which you use them. Look at the following sentence:

An inverted sentence is a sentence in a normally subject-first language in which the predicate (verb) comes before the subject (noun).

Because there is no object following the verb , the noun phrase after the verb "lived" can be decoded as subject without any problem. In English, such an inversion often introduces do-support.

An inverted sentence switches the placement of the verb before the subject of a sentence as if in a question. Here are some examples of inverted sentences:

Not only is he difficult to understand, but he is also funny.
Never have I understood less about women.
Scarcely have they been on time.

Sentences have two types according to word order. One is the natural order and the other is the inverted order. A sentence is in its natural order if the subject comes first before the predicate. For example: The baby/ sleeps under the tree. My cellphone/ rang during our meeting. The girl is watching TV. I /will help you with your home work. My dog/ is a golden retriever. *Here the subject is separated by a line. Likewise, a sentence is in the inverted order if the predicate comes before the subject. For example: Under the tree, the baby sleeps. During our meeting, my cellphone rang. Watching tv is the girl. Will you help me with my homework? Is your dog a golden retriever? If you have noticed from the examples above, the verb does not necessarily need to be before the subject. Placing a part of the predicate before the subject would make the sentence in the inverted order. Also a most questions are in the inverted order like: Will you help me with my homework? And lastly, sentences beginning with the demonstrative pronouns "here" and "there" are always in the inverted order. For example: Here is your materials for tomorrow. *to converted to the natural order just place the words after "here" before it and place the linking verb or verb before here. Your materials for tomorrow is here. I hope that you learned something here.

An inverted sentence is a sentence in a normally subject-first language in which the predicate (verb) comes before the subject (noun).

Because there is no object following the verb , the noun phrase after the verb "lived" can be decoded as subject without any problem. In English, such an inversion often introduces do-support.

In English grammar , inversion is a reversal of normal word order , especially the placement of a verb ahead of the subject ( subject-verb inversion ). The rhetorical term for inversion is hyperbaton . Also called  stylistic inversion and  locative inversion.

Any sentence in which the normal word order is reversed, with the verb coming before the subject or the complete subject and predicate coming after another clause. Example: Normal - I will never do that again! Inverted - Never will I do that again!
