    adverbs in sentences

    Would you kindly help me with adverbs? Could you give me some sentences which have two adverbs with the same meaning?


    thank you.

    thank you.
    If a sentence has two adverbs with the same meaning, it is defective. This type of flaw is called tautology. E.g. He has recently arrived in London lately. Such a sentence is ungrammatical.
