Assunto:  Inversion after negative and limiting adverbials
 
Mensagem:  It´s simple. With not until/not since/only after/only by/only after we will use the inversion in the second part of the sentence.

Explanation taken from http://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/inversion.html


Examples:
  • Not until much later did he find out the truth.
  • Not since she lived in Tuscany had she tasted such delicious food.
  • Not until you pass your intern exam will you be allowed to practise surgery.
  • Not until I saw her did I remember we had been to medical school togheter.
  • Not since I was under-graduate have I had so much fun at a party.
