OK. The sentence is:
Prisoners today have too many rights in many prisons.
So, is the place of the word "today" on the right place or not? I know that this "today" is usually placed on the end of the sentence (or on the beginning), but I wondered:
Today doesn't mean "at this day" in the sentence. It describes a repeated action, so can I place it on the second place like I do with these: sometimes, usually, often, always..., because it has the meaning of frequency too.
Thank you :)
Yes. "Today" in your example can be treated like the general rule for the frequency word "sometimes", and therefore may be placed at the beginning of the sentence, at the end of the sentence or, as you have, in its place before the verb and all verbs, except forms of the verb "to be", in which case it should follow those forms.
