  倒装结构中的常见短语:
  Strange as it may sound…
  Little did I know...
  To your right...; and to your left ... as in "To my right is a large a lake, partially hidden behind the hill.
  Off we go...
  Down with ... as in "Down with the Gang of Four."

  Reverse the sequence for effect
  妙用倒装
  如果你行文平淡,那就枯燥无味。你需要不时地改变一下你的行文规则,把简单的东西紧缩,放在一起写,有时你得打破你叙述事情的惯用模式。达到语言变化自如的途径之一是颠倒句子的正常顺序。倒装使文章清新,出人意料,富于创造性。
  打破词或句子的自然顺序可获得强调的效果,但注意:如果过分使用倒装会使文章矫揉造作,有明显的雕琢痕迹。同时句子次序的变化不应该造成歧义。
  例 Wrong: Those who teach rarely get rich.
  这个句子含义模糊,分辨不出是 "teach rarely" 还是 "rarely get rich?"
  Reversed/ Correct:Rarely do those who teach get rich.
  Reversed/Correct:Rarely do people get rich by teaching.
  优秀作家一般在句子的一半处引出主语。可是很多学生几乎不用这种写法。应该变换这种主语开头的写法。
