What is the proper order of Subject pronoun if asking an inverted question in the passé composé?

 Is "T'ai-je déjà envoyé cet article" correct? Wouldn't hurt to be sure the adverb is also usually before the non-declined part of the verb ; ).

Hi Carol,

'T'ai-je déjà envoyé cet article?' is correct but sounds a bit pompous.

 

In every day speech you would say -

Est-ce que je t'ai déjà envoyé cet article?

Yes, that sounds correct to me.
