Abstract (Undetermined)
Full verb inversion (henceforth full inversion), i.e. when the grammatical subject
comes after the entire verb phrase in a declarative clause, has been the subject of
many linguists’ attention for some decades now. It has been difficult for researchers
to agree on why people use this marked construction, in both written and spoken
texts (as full inversion occurs frequently in spoken language as well as written as
pointed out by Prado-Alonso & Acuña-Fariña (2010)). Different approaches have
been made and it is probably safe to say that, even today, no one has found an
answer that explains every aspect of full inversion.
