英语副词的位置-详细解释

英语副词是修饰动词,形容词或其它副词的词汇。根据意思,可以把副词分为行为、时间、地点和程度等几种类型。在句子中,不同类型的副词可以用于不同位置。下面介绍一些基本规则。

一、副词不能放在动词和它的宾语之间

例句1:He speaks English well. (不是He speaks well English.)

例句2:I often visit my parents. (不是I visit often my parents.)

但up,down,off和on等副词小品词可以放在动词和其宾语之间。

例句3:She switched off the light. OR She switched the light off.

副词可以出现在三个位置:

  1. 从句的开始;
  2. 与动词一起(中间位置);
  3. 从句的结尾。

许多副词都能在这三个位置使用,但有些副词只能用于中间和结尾。较长的副词短语通常不放在中间位置。

二、能放在从句开始的副词

连接“what came before”从句的副词通常放在开始。如,however,then,next,besides和anyway等。

例句4:Some of us wanted to go on a picnic; however, John did not like the idea.

例句5:He finished his work. Then he went home.

三、中间位置也可以是正式文体

例句6:He then went home.

例句7:He, however, didn’t like the idea.

诸如usually,normally,often,frequently,sometimes和occasionally等副词可以用于从句的开始或结尾。

例句8:Sometimes I think I should find a better job.

例句9:Often I get headaches.

此外,位置副词也可以出现在从句开头,但这种情况多见于文学作品。

例句10:At the end of the street there was a toy store.
