Why is this sentence grammatically correct?
In no respect can he be looked upon as a good husband.
Why is "can" placed before "he"? please help
Also, wouldn't the sentence be grammatically correct if "he" was placed before "can".
In no respect he can be looked upon as a good husband.
When a sentence begins with a prepositional phrase (in no respect), the subject - verb order is inverted. He (subject) interrupts the verb phrase ( can be looked). It just sounds better with can he be looked. The helping verb CAN is before the subject because of the introductory prep. Phrase
