From where I left my previous article, from that point I like to started this article. In my previous article I wrote about the placement of the adverbs and also provided two points. Here, I am writing more points for placing the adverbs.
C) If the verbs qualified as the transitive, the qualifying adverb must be placed either before the verb or after the object. Following examples are helping your better understanding.
(i) My husband complete his work calmly.
(ii) He is waiting for his turn patiently.
(iii) I solved my problems cheerfully. etc
D) If the tense of the verb is formed by the auxiliary verb, the adverb is generally placed between the auxiliary verb and the principal verb. Following examples are helping you all for your better understanding the rule.
(i) You will soon return.
(ii) He has quite forgotten me. Here, Italic and bold words are adverbs.
E) The negative adverb “not” is always placed between the auxiliary verb and the principal verb. Following examples are helping you all for your better understanding the statement.
(i) I do not understand your opinion.
(ii) I am not coming soon.
F) Only: The meaning of a sentence depends upon the position of this adverb.
(a) Only he promised to read the first chapter of that book. Here “only” qualifies the pronoun “he”. He alone and no one else promised to read the first chapter.
(b) He only promised to read the first chapter of that book. Here, “only” is and adverb qualifying the verb promised and the meaning is that he only promised but did not perform the promise.
(c) He promised only to read the first chapter of that book. That is he did not promise to study, analyse or remembering but only to read the chapter. Here, “only” is the adverb which qualifying the verb “read”.`
(d) He promised to read only the first chapter of that book. That is he promised to read nothing more than the first chapter. Here, “only” is an adverb which is qualifying the adjective “first”.
(e) He promised to read the chapter of that book only. That is he promised to read the first chapter of his book but, not any other books. Here, “only” is an adverb that qualifying the phrase, ‘of the book”.
All the above sentences have different phrases and their uses. Just try to focus them and can able to identify them also. Please, never forget to share the articles. Thanks.
