Interested in Language
Sometimes I'm not sure where to put those words:
You have already written the solution.
You already have written the solution.
I have just lost a dollar.
I just have lost a dollar.
He is currently working as an officer.
He currently is working as an officer.
(Currently, he is working as an officer - should be okay as well.)
He always comes too late.
He comes always too late.
We will never sell our house.
We never will sell our house.
I believe the first versions of all examples are better than the 2nd ones.
However, I would like to know your opinion as well.
P.S: Is there maybe a rule?
(1) Yesterday, they left for France.
(2) They left for France yesterday.
(3) They had yesterday left for France.
(4) We will never have sold our house by next year.
He always comes too late is grammatical but it sounds better when placed at the end.
