  1. Selamat siang salam kenal sebelumnya..
    saya ada pertanyaan untuk adverb of degree. Kan untuk bagian BERDASARKAN POSISI menerangkan verb, complitely ditempatkan di sebelum verb ? Bisa ga sih sebenernya complitely ditaruh di antara aux dan verb ato dibelakang verb juga ? Terkma kasih mohon jawabannya…

    • Selamat siang..Salam kenal juga Arieffath..:)

      Baru sedikit saya revisi — contoh yang sebelum main verb dan diantara auxiliary (jika ada) dan main verb digabungkan. Completely cocok untuk salah satu posisi itu ketika menerangkan verb, tapi kalo untuk berada setelah verb saya tidak menemukan referensinya. Kebanyakan adverb of degree menempati posisi “mid”. Walaupun ada juga yang setelah verb seperti a lot dan a great deal.. c/ I don’t like it much.
