My Account / Test History
If we begin a sentence with here or there, we put the whole verb before the subject, if this is a noun.
- Here comes Mrs Foster (not I here Mrs Foster comes)
There goes your brother.
- Here she comes There he goes
This structure is possible with some other short adverbs like down, up.
So I stopped the car, and up walked a policeman.
In descriptive writing and story-telling, other adverbs of place can come at the beginning of a clause, followed by verb + subject.
- Under a tree was sitting the biggest man I have ever seen.
On the bed lay a beautiful young girl.
In books, the subject often comes after verbs like said, asked in reporting direct speech.
- What do you mean ?' asked Henry
If the subject is a pronoun, it comes before the verb.
'What do you mean?' he asked
