1. I will probably move to the north soon.
  2. Probably I will move to the north soon.

What is the difference between these two?

Does Number one imply that there is a small chance I may not move at all?

  • Research?... I mean..I am pretty much confused about these two above sentences and I think (what you have termed as research) i shared my thinking pattern in my last sentence. Is not it sufficient?What should I do after this... I really have no clue. I really need an appropriate answer. – user326024 Jan 7 at 11:02

    In #1, probably modifies move. In #2, it modifies the rest of the sentence (which should have a comma after probably). Both sentences mean the same thing, though #1 sounds more natural to me. – Lawrence Jan 7 at 11:06
  • As in #1,probably modifies move and in #2,it modifies the whole sentence....so should not there be a difference in the meaning? Like i said in my last part of my question... Was that correct? – user326024 Jan 7 at 11:27
  • Since both sentences use probably, they both imply there's a small chance you may not move. – Jason Bassford Jan 7 at 15:42
