Ignoring for a moment the bad rep of adverbs... On occasion I use one, and on some of those occasions I'm a bit unsure about the correct placement of them. For example: "He would likely have wanted to talk." "He likely would have wanted to talk." Based on a bit of googling, both seem to be correct, or acceptable, sentences. What is the difference? When would you favor one over the other, and why? Cheers.
