I can understand that 'hardly' was put soon after 'I' to give stress on the adverb.
Why does it feel incorrect if someone says, "I early came" or "I, early, came".
It seems some people often use "I, early, came to know about you". This seems correct.
"I, early, came here" - This seems wrong.
I feel like I understand why. But I can not put it into an explanatory form.
It was my colleague who once said "I early came". And he frequently uses poor sentence structure. He is not at all used to English. So, is there any way I can explain to him how to place adverbs correctly and also how to avoid mistakes like this (if it is, in fact, a mistake)?
