I want to know that can we place an adverb before and adjective means what is the order of placing adjectives adverbs when used together or individually

  • Place an adverb before what? Please review your question. It doesn't make much sense as written. – Lambie Dec 19 '19 at 6:47

We can put adverbs and adverb phrases at the front, in the middle or at the end of a clause.

The front position of the clause is the first item in the clause:

  • Suddenly I felt afraid.

  • Yesterday detectives arrested a man and a woman in connection with the murder.

The end position of the clause is the last item in the clause:

  • Why do you always have to eat so fast?

The mid position is between the subject and the main verb:

  • Apples always taste best when you pick them straight off the tree.
  • means we can place it before any adjective and it will always precede adjective – Trade Nivesh Investment Adviso Dec 19 '19 at 6:18
  • An adjective usually goes next to the noun it describes. An adverb relates to the verb in the sentence. There isn't any fixed rule about which comes first. – Kate Bunting Dec 19 '19 at 9:45
  • @KateBunting adverbs do not always relate to verbs. Sometimes an adverb relates to an adjective, as in the sentence we enjoyed a thoroughly delightful evening. – phoog Sep 24 '20 at 6:24
