Hello,

"By far, how to make a paper was explained."

Can I change the above as follows?

"By far, explained was how to make a paper."

Thanks a lot. :-)

Hi,

I meant:

So far was an explanation of how to manufacture a paper. (I am not sure even this is grammatically correct.)

'So far' refers to a point in time, which is often the present time.

eg So far, I have worked here for two tears. I intend to work here for another three years.

eg So far, he has explained how to manufacture paper. Now, he is going to explain how to manufacture ink.

By far, explained was how to make a paper

Here I meant to emphasize "explained" by inversion.

Generally speaking, you can't do that to add emphasis.

Best wishes, Clive

You mean 'inversion', not 'aversion'.

No, you can't.

Would you want to say'Cooked was dinner' instead of 'Dinner was cooked'?

Furthermore, 'by far' is not correct here. What do you mean by it?

Finally, what do you mean by 'make a paper'?
