    Smile Adverb Placement

    Good day everyone!

    I got a little confused when a friend told me that an adverb should be placed after a be-verb.
    Like for this sentence:

    She hasn't been really accepted...

    In my my opinion, the above sentence is grammatically correct as this sentence:

    She hasn't really been accepted...

    So I think, either way can be used.

    But does this have something to do with how one intensifies [something] in the sentence?

    I hope you could help me.

    Seize the day!

    Re: Adverb Placement

    I prefer the second; it sounds more natural to me, though the first is OK.
