    Question Word order

    I would like to know where can I use the adverbs, normal adverbs. For instance, Quickly and Feverishly...etc? I know how to use the adverb of frequency.

    Thanks!

    Re: Word order

    You don't seem to understand how this forum works. We are not a replacement for a dictionary or a good grammar book. It works by you asking us specific questions about individual usage and aspects of the language.

    As far as adverbs are concerned, why don't you write some example sentences using "quickly" and "feverishly" and post them here. We can then see if you are using them correctly. You must do some work yourself.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I do all the work myself, but there's tons of questions I would like to ask about. I'm so sorry for the lack of specificity in asking questions. What I mean the adverbs can be used.

    I went to the school yesterday quickly.
    I quickly went to the school yesterday.
    I went to the school quickly yesterday.

    If you mean you went to a building called a school in order to attend classes, you should remove "the".

    "I went to school quickly yesterday" is the most natural word order. Or you can say "Yesterday, I went to school quickly".

    It's not a very natural thing to say in general though. Were you late? Is that why you had to travel quickly? If so, it would be more natural to say "I had to rush to school yesterday".
