 Adverbs of certainty - English Grammar Lessons Guide

Adverbs of certainty express how certain we feel about an action or event. Adverbs of certainty go before the main verb unless the main verb is 'to be', in which case the adverb of certainty goes after.

We use adverbs of certainty to say how sure we are of something. Examples are: certainly, definitely, clearly, obviously and probably. Adverbs of certainty usually go in mid-position.
