Why “never should one contemplate” & why not “one should never contemplate”? Hi friends, I came across the following sentence while reading a book. “Loneliness is a state of mind and never should one contemplate marriage because of loneliness.” Why “never should one contemplate” and why not “one should never contemplate”? I would appreciate if someone could explain this to me. Thanks in advance! Niwantha

You could say either, but “never should one contemplate” is a more literary way of expressing the thought.
