What is the best place for this adverb in a sentence? I'm used to saying it at the begininig of a sentence, but recently I've come across "Shops sometimes close in the afternoon" which seems to be a little bit awkward to me. I've just found a rule which says that advebs of frequency usually go after the subject, but 'sometimes" may go first if you want to stress it. Does it mean that all my sentences were emphatic? Should I always say it after the subject if I don't want to stress it?
Thank you! But still, which position of "sometimes" is more common - before or after the subject? When I google for it it seems to the former.
