    Inversion



    In a German sentence, the verb must always be in the 2nd position. 

    Florian arbeitet in einem Büro. 

       1.        2.           3.

    subject   verb     other element

    It is possible for a sentence to start with the other element, and not with the subject.
    In this case, the other element and the subject change places.

    In einem Büro arbeitet Florian.

          3.                  2.         1.

    other element   verb   subject

    The verb doesn't move.
