Take the following two sentence structures as examples:

  1. This is the best book I have ever read.
  2. This is the best book I ever have read.

Although the first one is more frequently used, I want to know if there is anything grammatically wrong if we use the second.

1 Answer 1


The first one is grammatically correct and it is not just the frequency of its usage

as I remember:

the adverbs of frequency come before the main verb like : read, eat, sit, drive and etc... and the main verb in this sentence is ?


so I have ever read is the best choice

and I haven't seen anything like the second sentence even in slang speaking

maybe you could provide some of it if you have ever seen something like it
