'Generally' as a degree adverb

Instead of being a circumstance adverb, could ‘generally’ be a degree adverb in the following sentence:

‘I knew I was being really silly, but generally my intuitions were correct.’ (page 16 of Mastering Advanced English Language Second Edition by Sara Thorne)

That is, ‘generally’ is a modifier of ‘correct’ ie. answering ‘how correct’?


No. ‘generally’ here modifies the whole sentence: ‘my intuitions were correct.’
