      Using Adverbs of Frequency

      Post by الاستاذة أمال 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.
