    In JFK's inaugural address, he says "United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided there is little we can do." This is an example of inversion, specifically the part where he says "United there is little we cannot do," versus "Divided there is little we can do." (The actual definition of inversion is: Inverted order of words in a sentence (variation of the subject-ver-object order). Source: The Language of Composition. Editors: Shea, Scanlon, Aufses
