    Using Adverbs of Frequency

    on 2013-04-09, 02:05
    Some examples of adverbs that express definite frequency are every day, once a week, twice a month, etc. These adverbs of frequency come at the beginning or the end of a sentence.

    Every day we have a meeting with the sales team
    We have a meeting with the sales team every day.
    Once a week Jack visits his customers.
    Jack visits his customers once a week.
    Some examples of adverbs that express indefinite frequency are usually, never, seldom, etc. There are three positions for these adverbs of frequency, so you’ll need to memorize the rules:

    Rule #1. These adverbs come after the be verb

    It is seldom warm in February in NYC.
    Jack is never late for work.

    Rule #2. These adverbs come before all other verbs (except the be verb)

    We usually have a meeting with the sales team.
    Jack always visits his customers.

    Rule #3. These adverbs come between an auxiliary verb and the main verb:

    We can usually have a meeting in Conference Room B.
    Jack has never visited his customers in Paris.

    There are a few exceptions to the rules, so be careful! These adverbs of frequency – Frequently, normally, often, occasionally, sometimes, and usually (FNOOSU) – can also come at the beginning or end of a sentence.

    Sometimes Jack visits his customers in Chicago.
    Jack visits his customers in Chicago sometimes.
