Oct 1 '13 at 17:25 comment added FumbleFingers @Mistu4u: Ooops! I got so distracted messing about with the "emphatic markup" syntax I got the two elements the wrong way round in my first line (corrected now). Actually, I'm not convinced my "Little Jack Horner" example even reflects standard usage centuries ago (it may just be used for the sake of rhyme). After all, even Little Red Riding Hood says "Grandmother! What big teeth you have" - although she herself may not be very old, she was speaking a long time ago.
Oct 1 '13 at 16:42 comment added Mistu4u So you directly contradict with Tyler here who said in his answer- if you're going to include “is”, make sure it's at the end. Otherwise, it does sound halfway like a question, and comes off a little awkward. I personally thought this structure (the first two) can be used, but could not said strongly as I forgot most of the basic grammars. :-P Anyway +1 for this informative answer.
