And also in this sentence: ( in came two huge mastiffs.), shouldn’t it be ( came in) ?
You’re right. This is because of the old-fashioned and literary style of this fable. In addition, sometimes we change the order of words to place some emphasis. For example, we say: “Study more carefully for the exam” said the teacher. However, we should say: the teacher said.
Hello Dr.Hariri. I have a question.
What is the meaning of this sentence: (No sooner said than done.)
No sooner said than done = immediately
It means the act of saying and doing something happens at the same time without wasting any time.
