    to never do it/never to do it

    Hello everyone,

    I have a problem here:

    1. He told me to do it.
    2. He told me not to do it.
    3. He told me never to do it.
    4. He told me to always do it.

    What I am in doubt of is where should be the place of adverb of time in the sentence N3 and N4.

    May be it should be like this:
    3. He told me to never do it.
    4. He told me to do it always.

    Need your opinion on this one.

    Thank you.

    Your original versions are the most natural.

    Your revised versions are not impossible, but are not often appropriate.
