Using Adverbs of Frequency Empty Using Adverbs of Frequency

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.
