Imagine the following situation:

Person A says to person B, that B will be the target of taunt/sneers/ridicule etc.
Is it possible to formulate the following sentence (regarding the word order)?

"You will often be made fun of."


"You often will be made fun of."

I know that it sounds like a dumb question, but as a German student I have still much to learn about the English language.


1 Answer 1


"You will often be made fun of."

The above sounds better for sure.

Adverbs of frequency usually go before the verb, not before the auxililary.
