Tomorrow, I will tell you the story . Adverb of place : -It comes after the direct object. I didn’t see him here. -If there is no object it comes after the main verb. He stayed behind.
  • 7. Adverb of degree : - It comes before what it modifies. The exam was extremely difficult . It was quite hot. Adverb of frequency : -It comes before the main verb. I always get up at 6:00. -Or between the auxiliary and the main verb. He doesn’t always play tennis. Mandy can usually play football on Sundays. -Or after the verb to be.
