The position of an adverb often depends on the kind of adverb (manner, place, time, degree) and if the word being modified is a verb or an adjective.

There are three positions for adverbs.

  1. Initial Position An adverb that is at the beginning of a clause or a sentence.
  2. Middle Position Adverbs that are generally placed in the middle of a sentence, or in the 'mid-position'.
  3. End Position An adverb that is usually placed at the end of a sentence or phrase.
