    strangely nervous

    1) She was strangely nervous during the dinner.

    Does this mean:
    a) Strangely, she was nervous during the dinner.
    or:
    b) During the dinner, she was nervous in a strange way.


    And is this one correct:
    2) She was nervous strangely during the dinner.


    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    2 is incorrect. B is the likelier meaning.
