order of words

- j'ai besoin que tu inclines un peu ta tablette ver le bas,

Is there a rule regarding the position of 'un peu' in the above sentence?

I put it at the end but none of the examples placed it there.

Bonjour G,

'peu' is part of the adverbs of quantity and 'un peu' is an adverbial expression. Adverbs of quantity and of time are usually placed right after the verbs they refer to, especially the monosyllabic ones likes 'peu, trop, etc’.

Il parle peu = he doesn’t talk much

Tu inclines trop ta tablette = you are tilting your tablet too much

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
