Mid-position refers to one of the three positions an adverb can occupy in a clause. Not all adverbs can go in mid-position, but it is the typical position for adverbs of certainty (maybe, obviously, probably); completeness (almost, nearly, quite); indefinite frequency (always, usually, often) and some adverbs of manner (badly, suddenly).[1]
