I would like to say that I want to buy something in future, but I'm not sure which of the sentences below is a better choice:

  1. We will probably order another box of earphones, please send us invoice for the order so we can process the payment
  2. We probably will order another box of earphones, please send us invoice for the order so we can process the payment

kindly advise, thanks !

Adverbs can be placed in four positions in a sentence:

1.At the beginning;

2.At the end;

3.After the verb to be and all auxiliary verbs: can, may, will, must, shall etc.

4.Before all the other verbs.

In case of modal verbs (have, can, will, shall, may, must, might), the adverb follows the verb.

So, the better choice in your example is

We will probably order another box of earphones, please send us invoice for the order so we can process the payment

However, adverbs are also used to put emphasis on a verb , and in that case they come before the verb. So, you may find the second sentence being used in that scenario.

it's will probably because it's probably won't and I remembered that it was the oppesit. I'm sorry if my English isn't correct 'cause I'm Dutch.

    Can you give more reasoning as to why the case of ‘probably won’t’ will apply, other than ‘they’re opposite’? – Fivesideddice Apr 9 at 12:44
