Inversion (also called anastrophe)
A reversal of the normal order of words or phrases.
Grammatically, this would mean:
An adjective placed after a noun.
A verb place before a subject.
A noun placed before its preposition.
May be used in poetry and prose as a form of emphasis and to draw attention.
May be used in poetry for reasons of rhythm and rhyme.
A famous example of a character who often speaks in inversion is Yoda from Star Wars.
