My question is the following: Is it grammatically accurate to say
I have only a few friends
If I were asked I would say that
I only have a few friends
is just perfect according to the rule below.
My idea of the word order in sentences with 'only/just/almost' is that we should use them before the main verb but after the verbs 'to be' and 'can' e.g.:
I only have a few friends.
I have just done my homework.
I'm almost finished.
Could you direct me to some relieble sources where I can find justification?
