sure的位置

我在蘋果日報看到一句"It sure is amusing."

一般副詞不是放在be動詞之後,一般動詞之前嗎?

為什麼這句"sure"放的位置是be動詞之前??

是蘋果日報打錯了嗎??

有人能幫我解答嗎??

THANKS

    It sure is amusing.

    在此 sure 是當副詞, 與certainly意思相同. 因此放在be動詞 is 前面. 這是一種informal非正式的用法. 判斷方式為後面是形容詞. 如I sure am hungry. 我當然很餓也是相同句型.

    正式的用法, 副詞是surely. It surely is amusing. I surely am hungry.

    至於一般sure的位置, 沒錯, 如同你所說的. 是放在be 動詞後.

    It is sure of/that/to be +名詞/子句/動詞
