Adverbs for viewpoint and commenting – наречия оценки и точки зрения
There are adverbs which tell us about the speaker's point of view or opinion about an action.
These adverbs are different from regular adverbs.
Viewpoint and commenting adverbs modify entire clauses instead of single verbs, adverbs, or adjectives.
There is no real difference between viewpoint adverbs and commenting adverbs except where they are placed in a sentence.

Viewpoint adverbs indicate the speaker's opinion about something.
They are usually placed at the beginning of the sentence.
For example:

  • Honestly, I don't know how it happened.
  • Seriously, the game made me go insane.
  • Personally, I don't think he's a good player.
  • Surprisingly, they won.
  • Obviously, they don't know what they're doing.
  • Clearly, the team has a problem.
  • Surely, you've seen this before.
  • Undoubtedly, he was the best soccer player in the history of our city.

Commenting adverbs are very similar to viewpoint adverbs and are may be the same words. However, they are usually placed after a "be" verb or before a main verb.

  • He is definitely a good player.
  • She certainly knows what she wants.
  • This was obviously performed by a professional.
  • You are simply the best teammate.
  • I honestly don't like her.
  • He seriously has a problem.
