"WHAT IT IS, MY DOGE?"

English has a SVO word order, meaning in syntax the subject precedes the verb which precedes the object. The exception to this is questions, which have a VSO word order, inverting the subject and the verb. For example, the statement (I am here.) has the subject first, while the question (Where am I?) has the verb first. In the Homestar Runner universe, however, the characters occasionally fail to invert the subject and the verb, creating a non-inverted question.
