    position of particularly

    The English-speaking world particularly has adopted them. (Three Times Three Equals Twelve)

    Can I say: The English-speaking world has particularly adopted them?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: position of particularly

    No, that would change the meaning. You need "particularly" to be in a position where it clearly refers to "The English-speaking world", not to "has adopted them".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
