    Quantifiers

    Should "You only live once" be rewritten as "You live only once", with "only" next to the thing it quantifies, "once" ?

    Re: Quantifiers

    Technically, yes. In reality, almost everyone uses "You only live once" or, in the case of the very famous James Bond film, "You Only Live Twice".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
