The right position of Adverbs

One day, however, one of the scientists decided to reduce the speed of the audiotapes of the "dolphin talk". To his surprise, he discovered that the whistles and clicks, at a slow speed, sounded more like human sounds.

I wonder where the right position of the Adverbs should it put ?

As the sample above : I found the adverbs of "however" or even "then" are often put on followed by subject or at the begining of the sentence.

    In fact, the 'however' can both be put in the beginning of the sentence, or be put after a subject or other suitable words.

    For example, you can write

    ' He shouted at her. However, she just ignored him. '


    ' He shouted at her. She, however, just ignored him. '

    Sometimes, the key point is that,

    the ' however ' , ' then ' , ' therefore ' , etc.,

    can be put according to your own will, in the front or after some words,

    but I always make a decision depending on

    which way I can say the sentence more fluently.

    Also, the change of the position of these words can prevent the

    sentence from being boring.

    Like, avoid using these connectives in the front every time. Just like your

    sentence , the ' however ' follows other words.

    Hope it is clear enough!
