or "... that men essentially only concern themselves with taking ...."In the following sentence, is it okay to use both adverbs right next to each other
like howas I do?:
exhibitsshows that men are essentially only concerned about taking care of themselves."
Thanks in advance.
They may only have one concern in their lives. I can't defend it much more than that, since that's the way I would say it -- but I've been known to be misplaced.Shouldn't it read, ". . . that men essentially are concerned only about . . . "?
I believe that "only" modifies the phrase that ends the sentence, not "concerned".
