Position Of Adverbs


Adverbs should be placed as near as possible to the verbs they modify. When the verb has no object, place the adverb immediately after it.

When the verb has an object, place the adverb immediately after the object.

Adverbs of time and frequency are placed before the verb. Examples are: seldom, always, often, before, never etc.

When the sentence consists of an auxiliary verb and a principal verb, the adverb is placed between the two. If there are two auxiliaries, the adverb is placed between them.

An adverb is placed before an adjective or another adverb which it modifies.

Note that the adverb enough comes after the adjective which it modifies.
