In this chapter the adverbs of opinion and observation will be explained. They give information about an opinion about an action or an observation of an action.
Adverbs of opinion and observation inform us about an opinion about an action or an observation of an action.
The adverbs of observation are similar to the adverbs of manner, because they both give information about how something is carried out.
1) Adverbs of opinion are usually placed at the beginning of the sentence, then they are separated from the rest of the sentence by a comma. Rarely they are placed at the end.
2) Adverbs of observation are usually placed before the main verb. If the main verb is 'to be' the adverbs of observation can be placed after the main verb.
The following table shows a list of common adverbs of opinion and observation.
