Datapoint Belizean Creole/Order of frequency adverb, verb, and object

'Often' is not found in the data. Instead Belizean Creole speakers use 'usually; mostly, sometimes, always' etc. Those occur pre-verbally.
An equivalent expression is the use of 'lone' in adjectival position. It is is very common and works as an emphatic marker (see examples 26 and 27).
