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
***NOT A TEACHER***Esuru, good afternoon. (1) Yes, English allows two or more adverbs in one sentence. (2) I believe your sentence is fine: Susan NEVER (= at no time in the past) had a cat BEFORE (= previously). That is, Susan previously never had a cat, but now she does. In your nice sentence, "before " is an adverb. If you want to use it as a preposition, you could say, "Susan never had a cat before now." If you wish to use "before" as a conjunction, you could say, "Susan never had a cat before she moved to the Big Apple (New York City)." Thank you.
