    Re: would have never done

    I think you would hear it very frequently in the States!
    As I see it, 'never' is modifying the verb, and the verb is not 'done', but the perfect conditional form (would) 'have done' and should precede it in this sentence.

    There is a great deal of flexibility when it comes to adverb placement, for all dialects of English.

    Never would S have done this.

    Even a sentence ending 'never' is a possible collocation.

    S would have done this never.
