an adverb is a part of speech that modifies or describes a verb, an adjective, another adverb, a phrase, or a clause. Specifically, the adverb 'recently' gives more information about the time that an action was performed. It conveys that the action happened a short time ago, after a time in the past that is not specified. 'Recently' can usually be placed in the middle or at the end of a sentence.
The adverb 'recently' always follows the verb in a sentence and is used to specify the time of an action. Note that the time frame of 'recently' is relative to the time when the speaker refers to it.
1. I recently completed my university studies.
2. She was recently married.
3. They have recently moved to a new house.
Make sure to use this adverb with caution, as its meaning might be interpreted in different ways by different people. For example, 'I recently bought a new bike' can be interpreted as the speaker having bought the bike days or weeks ago, whereas 'I bought a new bike recently' can be interpreted as having just purchased the bike.
