This is called "verb inversion"
1) After negative expressions:
Not only do I enjoy classical music, but I also have a season ticket to the symphony
Seldom has the boss been so upset!
Never have I been more insulted!
2) After 'Only' Expressions such as 'only after', 'only when', 'only then', etc.
Only then did I understand the problem.
3) After 'Little'
Little did he understand the situation.
4) Inversion after 'So', 'Such', and 'That'
So strange was the situation that I couldn't sleep.
Such is the moment that all greats traverse.
5) Inverted Conditional Forms
Had he understood the problem, he wouldn't have committed those mistakes.
