    well

    Are these correct:

    1- I well understand what you mean. (instead of "I understand what you mean well.")
    2- What you said was well understood. (instead of "What you said was understood well")

    3-I well did my work. (instead of: I did my work well.)
    4-The work was well done. (instead of: The work was done well.)

    5-I well received your letter. (instead of: I indeed received your letter.)

    2- What you said was well understood. (instead of "What you said was understood well") Once again. clearly' is more natural, IMO.

    3-I well did my work. No (instead of: I did my work well.)
    4-The work was well done. (instead of: The work was done well.) Both fine.

    5-I well received your letter. No (instead of: I indeed received your letter.)
