    has seriously been

    Hi,

    *self-made*

    - Oh, my friend has seriously been hurted.

    I know it is common to put the adverb 'seriously' before 'hurted' but I'd still like to ask if the above position is OK or not.

    Thank you!

    Re: has seriously been

    No. It is the "hurt" that is "serious" not the "been."

    Note that it is "hurt," not "hurted." "Hurted" isn't a word.
