Shakespeare is said to have learned to fence at
the Blackfriars Theatre, most probably under the
instruction of Vincentio Saviola, who arrived in London
when the young playwright was 26.


In the above sentence, is it correct to use "most probably", and if yes, how so?

Hi Cooliegirly

Saying "most probably" means that something is 'very probable' or 'extremely likely'.
