Why is "maybe" located after the verb? Can I change the location of maybe?
Yes, the position of the adverb "maybe" can be changed in the sentence. For example, "Maybe you get started a little slowly ..." works here and does not change the meaning of the sentence. Adverbs often follow verbs, but in the case of "maybe," can also be placed at the beginning of a sentence, before the subject (you) and verb(s) (get started). "Maybe" can also be placed after a comma at the end. Ex. Are you hungry, maybe? Ex: Maybe the office has closed already.
