Grammar & Punctuation – adverbial position(middle) – English editing.

Adverbials can also be placed in the middle of the sentence. This is particularly true of single word adverbials or ADVERBS. The key to placing the adverbial correctly is the VERB. If the verb consists of a single word, then the adverbial is usually placed immediately before it:
They finally reached the deck.
If there is an AUXILIARY VERB and a MAIN VERB the adverb is placed between them:
They have finally reached the deck.
In such sentences, adverbials cannot be placed between the main verb and its OBJECT:
They have reached finally the deck.
