    The position of "ever"

    Hi,

    - I won't ever leave you. *Could it be: "I won't leave you ever."?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    I won't leave you! Ever!
    I won't ever leave you.

    I won't leave you ever -- not very good style.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It's the same as saying "I will never leave you"
