    adverb place

    I will appreciate if someone can explain to me what is the rule for placing adverb at the write place.

    I wrote to someone the following quote:

    "I can immediately prepare shipment of...."

    I want to know if I placed the adverb "immediately" at the right place.

    waiting for your kind help

    Re: adverb place

    An adverb is usually put either after the first auxiliary/modal verb if you have an analytical form or before a notional verb if you have a simple form. However it can also occur at either end of a sentence.

    We sometimes go to Spain.
    We'll sometimes go to Spain.
    Sometimes we go to Spain.
    We go to Spain sometimes.

    In your sentence 'immediately' can be used either after 'can' or at the end of the sentence. BTW I think you need 'the' with 'shipment'.

    Yes. In the chess game of English, adverbs are the knights. They hop all over the place.
