    Concequently we can use "always" as we wish and feel.
    Where to put the adverbs of frequency in the sentence: Before the main verb and after 'to be" or as we wish?

    Default Re: How to use the adverb of frequency" always"

    With this sentence, "Mt. Kilimanjo is always found at the equator."
    1. Is "always" still function as adverb of frequency? and if it does, does it answer the question "how often?"
    2. or "always" is not necessary in this kind of sentence.?
    3. or "always" is not considered as an adverb of frequency here?

    Any explanations?

    The basic rule is that adverbs of frequency come before the main verb but after present and past forms of be (am, are, is, was, were). In the case of tenses that use an auxiliary, we put the adverb between the auxiliary and the main verb.
