Why does "very well" put before "hope"? Can I use "really" instead of "very well"? Is there any difference between placing "very well" elsewhere?
"Bloody well" in this context is a British phrase that means "certainly", "properly", or "really", although it is a little bit rude. You could use "really" or "very well" instead of "bloody well" here and it would make sense. "Bloody well" or "very well" makes this sentence sound a little bit more formal. It is put in front of "hope" here because it is an adverb used to describe the word "hope" in this case. It would not make sense to place the phrase "bloody well" at any other point in the sentence except before the verb "hope". Ex: I'd bloody well like to eat dinner. Ex: You should very well come to the event on time.
