Why is “xxxx doth not a yyyy make” considered valid English?
Proper usage/origin of the generic phrase “[action phrase] does not a [noun] make”
“Two films don't a revolution make”: is this sentence grammatically correct?
“Dazzling images do not a shining nation make”
Is employing hyperbaton correct in English?
The following sentence is from the book "Practical Common Lisp":
A single record, however, does not a database make.
It sounds somewhat strange because of the word order: Subject-aux.verb-object-verb. Instead of this order I would expect the following:
A single record, however, does not make a database.
Is this a common practice? Does the first order alter meaning in any way? Maybe it mimics some other text or a way of talking?
