Inversion

French inversion
The normal word order in French and English is subject + verb, as in vous êtes - "you are." Both languages also have what is known as inversion, where the verb and subject pronoun switch places, resulting in êtes-vous - "are you." In English, inversion is used only to ask questions, but in French it has several different purposes.
