3.- Grammar – Position of adverbs

In this lesson we are going to look at the position of 4 different types of adverbs:

  1. Adverbs of Manner
  2. Adverbs of Place
  3. Adverbs of Time
  4. Adverbs of Frequency

Adverbs of Manner

  • Quickly, slowly, carefully, softly, etc.

These adverbs are put after the direct object (or after the verb if there's no direct object):

Subject + Verb + Direct Object + Adverb

Examples:

  • I eat the apple quickly 
  • I eat quickly

Adverbs of Place

  • Here, there, behind, etc

These adverbs are put after the direct object or the verb (or after the verb if there’s no direct object).

Subject + Verb + Direct Object + Adverb

Examples:

  • He saw the dog there
  • He stayed there

Adverbs of Time

  • Now, yesterday, tomorrow, etc.

Adverbs of time are usually put at the end of the sentence or at the beginning of the sentence.

Time + Subject + Verb Direct + Object Time

Examples:

  • I went to hospital yesterday
  • Yesterday I went to hospital


Adverbs of Frequency

  • Sometimes, often, never, etc.

Adverbs of frequency are put before the main verb. If 'be' is the main verb and there is no auxiliary verb, adverbs of frequency are put after 'be'.

Subject + Auxiliary / be + Adverb + Main Verb + Object, Place or Time

Examples:

  • They sometimes go to the park on Saturdays
  • He doesn’t often play football
  • She is never at home
  • I have always been to Spain
