    position of , however,

    Hi,

    Question:
    Any difference between the following 3 sentences?
    Eg, difference between emphasis, meaning.
    I was told that, however is an adverb in my sentence.

    Sentence1:
    However, the police did not believe him.
    Sentence2:
    The police, however, did not believe him.
    Sentence:
    The police did not believe him, however.


    thanks

    Re: position of , however,

    I was told that, however is an adverb in my sentence.


    1 = 3
    2≠3 --> 2≠1


    Change in emphasis and change in meaning often go hand in hand.

    The police, however, did not believe him. -- everyone else did

    The police did not believe him, however. -- hard as he tried to convince them
