Grammar: Adverbs of Frequency

We use adverbs of frequency to talk about how often something happens in a period of time.

Adverbs of frequency talk about how often something happens (0% – 100 % of the time).

There are two places where you can find an adverb of frequency in a sentence:

after a be verb or before most other verbs (not be verbs).

Rarely, hardly ever, and never are negative adverbs of frequency and should not be used with “no” or “not.” Instead, use a positive adverb of frequency, like always, usually, sometimes, or occasionally.

I never don’t eat dessert. → I always eat dessert.
