    name of this type of phrases

    Hi all,

    My question beings with this sentence:-

    "From Monday to Friday, Shelly's mother gives her daughter $3 everyday."

    I know there is a name for this phrase "from Monday to Friday".

    Can this sentence also be written as follows?

    "Shelly's mother gives her daughter $3 everyday from Monday to Friday"

    It seemed to be that the "everyday" and "from Monday to Friday" somehow clashes grammatically yet I couldn't quite put my finger to it.

    Please advise.

    Please note that "everyday" is an adjective so you should use "every day" throughout your post.

    Teacher Fivejedjon,

    Can I also call it a prepositional phrase used as an adverbial?

    Thank you.
