Hello,

Could you please suggest is there any difference in meaning between

the phrases "would not it be" and "whould it not be"? For instance, do

the following sentences mean the same?

1) Would not it be a good move for me to join the Navy?

2) Would it not be a good move for me to join the Navy?

P.S. This question can be expanded to cover other similar situations,

such as "is not it" vs. "is it not". I suppose, the answer would be universal

for all these cases?!

Thanks in advance.

There is no difference in meaning. #2 is the normal word order.

The former sentence is assertive and reassuring, while the latter is passive and shows uncertainty.
