Frequency adverbs show how often something happens. They usually come before the main verb in a sentence: "I sometimes cook Italian food."
They can also be found after 'be' verbs (Am, is, are) : "She is always early for class."
Use this scale to get an idea of what the adverbs mean. Remember, this is just an estimate. The percentages are not fixed rules!
100% - Always
80% - Usually
60% - Often
50% - Sometimes
0% - Never
Look at these examples:
|Subject||Auxiliary||Adverb of frequency||Verb||Rest|
|I||always||get up||at 6.45.|
|Peter||can||usually||play||football on Sundays.|
|Mandy||has||sometimes||got||lots of homework.|
