Movable Adverbs

In English, adverbs are words that modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. Adverbs can be categorized as either movable or fixed. Movable adverbs are those that can be placed in different positions within a sentence without changing the meaning of the sentence. For example, the adverb "quickly" can be placed at the beginning of a sentence ("Quickly, she finished her homework") or at the end of a sentence ("She finished her homework quickly"). However, not all adverbs are movable - some adverbs, such as "always" or "never," are fixed and cannot be moved without changing the meaning of the sentence. Understanding the difference between movable and fixed adverbs is an important aspect of mastering English grammar and syntax.
