The order of adverbs #1 (permalink) Mon Jul 13, 2009 22:40 pm   The order of adverbs
 

I'm really doubted about the order of adverbs. So,
what is the right order of adverbs when there are a lot of them (different sorts) in a sentence?

Unlike adjectives, adverbs can occur only two (or three?) together at the most. Put the general one (very, mostly, etc) first.
