adverbs of Frequency

why do we use some adverbs of frequency with Present Continuous?

Hi Sultano

Are you by any chance referring primarily to the use of ‘always’ with the present continuous?

I’m always doing something.
I’m always losing things.

Is it true that using " always " shows ths speaker’s disaproval?

are there any adverb of frequency used with present continuous?

Hi Sultano

Words such as always, constantly, endlessly, forever can be used with the present continuous to emphasize repetitive action. This usage frequently indicates irritation or frustration. It may indicate disapproval, and it can also be a complaint.

  • You’re always claiming to be better than everyone else.
  • He’s forever losing his keys.
  • My car is constantly breaking down.
