    Default adverbs

    In English, when you see two adverbs being used in a row, 99.9% of the time it is the first one that modifies the second one. For example, in this sentence, "I like her smile so much," it is adverb #1 (so) that modifies adverb #2 (much).

    Can you find an English adverb that can be used as the second one of the sequence but can also find itself to be modifying the first one? :?

    thank you very much :)

    I agree with your statement that when you see two adverbs in a row that the first one is modifying the second one. I do not think it is ever the other way around.
