Why is “xxxx doth not a yyyy make” considered valid English?
I occasionally come across a sentence formulated in a manner similar to the following:
Reading a book does not an expert make.
I realize the grammar is quite irregular (I'm no grammar expert, so I'll just call it Yoda-speak), but I've heard this structure used a number of times in the colloquial. My questions are:
- Is anyone else familiar with this sentence structure?
- What's the origin?
- How should I use it properly?
