ADVERB OF FREQUENCY

Definition :
Position of adverbs of frequency which answer the question ‘How often?’

These Adverbs tell us how often or how frequently an action takes place.

e.g.

She always like black tea
She seldom goes there
Sometimes I feel bad
I never expect this again
David never comes here
We’ve been to Disneyland twice
The newspaper is delivered daily
I clean my bedroom every week
You should go to the dentist once every six months
If the adverb is am, is, are, was, were, these adverbs are placed after the verb.

e.g.

She is always late
He was never absent
I am always at home on Saturday
In the case of other verbs, they are put before the verb.

e.g.

She seldom comes here
They frequently go there
I never do such a thing
When there are two verbs, these adverbs are placed after the auxiliary verb

e.g.

He will certainly help you
I can easily answer this question
She has already passed the examination
