    Adverbs

    Susan never had a cat before...what is the adverb in this sentence...is it never(adverb of frequency) or before (adverb of time)

    can there be two adverbs in one sentence?

    thanks in advance

    Re: Adverbs

    Yes, there can- I usually arrive early. 'Never' is often used colloquially instead of a negative as an emphatic form (I never said that = I didn't say that), which may be the case here.
