    Re: Position of adverbs

    It depends on the type of adverb.

    Re: Position of adverbs

    Re: Position of adverbs

    "Never" is a frequency adverb. Adverbs of frequency come before the main verb [except the main verb "to be"]:

    e.g She is always on time.

    Occasionally, sometimes, often, frequently and usually can also go at the beginning or end of a sentence:
    e.g
    Sometimes they go shopping on Sundays.
    I play tennis occasionally.

    Thumbs up Re: Position of adverbs

    I just read the examples and judged which one is right based on which one sounds well.

    "I never go there." is right! - the others sound so clumsy!

    Re: Position of adverbs

    i never go there.
    the position of the adverb is between the sub and the main verb in the sentence.
