I sometimes get confused with (or By? ) the place of an adverb in a sentence. I know the rule but I regularly see counter-examples!!
Is this sentence correct: We may have a few minutes only. Would it be better to say: We may only have a few minutes. ?
I believe you should use 'confused by'. 'confused with' is usually used slightly differently. It is used when it is difficult to understand the difference between two things. For example,
Swine flu can be confused with the common cold.
But I'm not so sure...
And what about this one:
-At that time, I could speak English fluently.
-At that time, I could fluently speak English.
I'd go with the first one but the rule I know goes with the second.
What about you?
