The subject usually comes before the verb, but there are sentences that have the subjects coming after the verbs. The verbs must still agree with the subjects.

  • There is a fly on your forehead.
  • There were three big men seated at the next table staring at me.

In questions, the subjects usually come after the verbs.

  • Does your girlfriend know you have a string of ex-girlfriends?
  • Have you heard my new ghost story yet?
