I am reading a book by Gavin Esler and in one part he writes this sentence.
If you excised these twenty or so words from the speeches of David Cameron, Tony Blair, or most political or business leaders, there would in many cases be little left.
What I want to highlight is this part,
there would in many cases be little left.
As we see, the word 'be' is added in latter half of the sentence. Whereas, the common usages I have seen, would have rather put this as,
there would be in many cases, little left.
How the variation of placement of 'be' matters and is there any context, reason of this variation.
Please excuse my ignorance of the 'proper words' used in grammar discussions, I can barely identify and distinguish them now.
