We have just received the goods ordered. This is where the adverb generally goes in English - between the auxillary "have" and the main verb.
"I have always depended on the kindness of strangers"
"You know, I'd never really wanted to see New Orleans".
"I have only had it for three days, and it is damned-well broken already!"
There are choices occasionally, but you'll generally be right with ( have + adverb + main verb)
Note 1. This doesn't necessarily apply to negative constructions.
Note 2. The situation is more complicated with the modals verbs.
According to different grammar books (such as English Grammar in Use), we say I have just received. I do not know the rule, but in all the examples I read just occurs between the auxilary and the main verb.
:up: Lots of good advice here. One addition: note that Raymott said the adverb usually goes between the auxiliary and the verb. What's difficult about 'have' in (particular) is that it has several other duties:
I have just seen - auxiliary
I just have/have just one cat - possession
I just have to see him - semi-modal
Nope. Anglika's the most active of us, but I'm averaging over 7 posts a day - any more than that and MrsK would complain ;-) . Click here UsingEnglish.com ESL Forum - Forum Statistics , and set Number of Results to 10 - I'm ranked 8th most frequent poster, and should make 7th by the end of the year. But many of us have jobs to do, and the forum is a leisure activity that must sometimes take second place.
