You know what I think is happened

You know I think what is happened


Are my statements proper? Whistle

In my point of view, the fits one emphasises on what. In the other side, the second one emphasises on I think.

You need to think about the structure of the verb. It is a normal structure -

[subject].......happened.

What is the correct auxiliary verb with a past participle?

Hi again, Nima!

Let me try to fix your sentences:


You know what I think has happened.



You know, I think, what has happened.
(Here, the commas help to place the emphasis on the words, "I think.")
