Star Wars Grammar By Yoda

Yoda Grammar

Something for Star Wars grammar lovers.

There is nothing better than a little inverted Yoda grammar to get the purists’ teeth gnashing.

This fantastic infographic gives a few examples of Yoda speak, which I have to admit, I love.

From inverted word order, or inversion, to dropping auxiliaries, moving modifiers, all the way through to dropping the negative auxiliary. What fun.

He even changes the verb-subject order, when the fancy takes him.

While this is a fun little read, what this infographic really says, is that grammar is a flexible set of general rules.

They can be modified, changed, and interpreted in a number of ways.

However, it pays to know the rules first, before you decide to bend or break them.

So enjoy this taste of Yoda Star Wars grammar, courtesy of Grammarly, and try not to gnash your teeth too much.
