Thank it is very useful
Great topic and explanation!
This part about position of adverbs was really useful to me.
Hello, I would like to know what kind of adverb all is. Thanks
Adverbs are mobile,they can appear before or after the word they modify. Examples. Unfortunately, Tara was hit. Tara was unfortunately hit.
Word Order - Position of Adverbs
The most common position of these Adverbs is before the main verb in the What part.
Example: I always watch the news
If there is an Auxiliary (do, does etc) or Modal (can, must, etc) they come before the Auxiliary verb or Modal and main verb
Example: I don’t always watch the news / I can’t always watch the news
Position of Adverbs
They will never do that again
He hardly ever goes out

Other adverbs that come before the main Verb
Example: They have already had lunch
They have recently bought a new car
She has just come back
She is always here
The Bus is rarely on time
We are all happy
August was even hotter than July

Answering the question of “How”
