    word order

    Hi all
    I just found this sentence, I think its order is incorrect. What do you think guys?!
    "In section 2 and 4 you will generally only have one main speaker."
    I think it should be:
    "Generally, in section 2 and 4 you will only have one main speaker."
    Am I right?

    Generally can be used at the beginning of the sentence, in the middle and at the end.

    Both are correct, but I'd put "only" before "one", because it means you'll have "only one main speaker", not that you'll have nothing in section 2 and 4 but "one main speaker".
