Hi, I really need help in this. Adverbs/Adverbial phrases are used to describe verbs. He is sleepy every day. 'Every day' applies to 'is'. What about those with auxiliary verb + main verb? Present Passive It is used every day. It is not used every day. Does the scope of 'every day' cover the main verb 'used' only? Simple Present The dog does not bark frequently. Does 'frequently' modify the main verb 'bark' only? Present Progressive The hamster is running every night. The hamster is not running every night. Does the scope of 'every night' cover the main verb 'running' only?
