    adverb

    Dear Teachers,

    Are there any difference between the following sentences and which one is correct?

    You always make me happy.
    You make me always happy.

    Thx

    There are many rules for the position of adverbs. With regard to always, it generally goes before the verb or after the auxiliary verb (if there is one.)

    Re: adverb

    "You make me always happy" means that your happiness never ends, it is perpetual, 24/7 happiness.

    When I see my favorite waitress bring me a cup of coffee, she always makes me happy. But she does not make me always happy.
