is there any difference between saying perhaps she helped her brother and she perhaps helped her brother —This unsigned comment was added by 41.234.126.252 (talk) at 09:43, 22 October 2008.

It’s a difference of focus. In the first, it means that she may have helped someone, that being her brother, or maybe she didn’t help anybody. In the second, it means that she did something for her brother that possibly helped him. —Stephen 17:54, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
