Re: Adverb placement/usage (use frequently vs. frequently use)
What is the correct (or preferred) placement of an adverb: preceding or
following the verb it modifies? What if the adverb is separated from the
verb? Which of the following statement is the correct (or preferred) usage:
A. If you frequently use the Dictionary, you can.....
B. If you use the Dictionary frequently, you can....
Sorry to clutter your Inboxes with such a basic question. I know that there
is a correct or preferred way to do this (and I've heard tech writers
arguing vehemently about it), but I can't remember what it is!
Your assistance is much appreciated.
