I'm Yoshinori Imada. I'm a Nagoya University(in Japan) student majoring in English Linguistics and studying when-clauses, especially difference between original temporal when-clauses and Narrative When-Clauses. I'm going to write about this for my graduation thesis.
It is said that directional inversion is allowed in Narrative When-Clauses, but locative inversion is not. So, I'd like to know whether it is correct or not.
Please answer some questions about it to complete my graduation thesis.
