Which is correct?

  1. He bravely saved his neighbor from a fire.
  2. He saved his neighbor bravely from a fire.
  3. He saved his neighbor from a fire bravely.

I am wondering where to put "bravely" in the sentences above. Are all of them grammatically correct?

  • There are many kinds of adverbs. #1 works best with "bravely" but sounds alien with "yesterday." And this has little to do with grammar. It's usually a question of usage. Commented Apr 21, 2022 at 16:58

1 Answer 1


Sentence 1 is by far the most natural and most likely to be used by a fluent speaker. Sentences 2 an 3 are not, I would say, grammatically incorrect, but would sound odd to a native speaker.
