We are taught that an adverb should be placed behind the verb it modifies or at the end of the sentence. For example: 1: I run quickly; 2: I love her deeply.

However, I see sentences in which the adverb has been placed in front of the verb it modifies. For example: They constantly are talking and listening to themselves.

My question is "Can an adverb be put either in front of or behind the verb it modifies, and is there any difference between them if I put the adverb in front instead of behind the verb?" The answer should be "Yes" to the first question, I reckon,.

Therefore, the sentences below should both be correct:

1: I can run quickly and I can quickly run
2: I love her deeply and I deeply love her

but what about the answer to the second question?
