    Never had practised/Had never practised
    Message from aprilfooler201 posted on 26-06-2021 at 07:55:48 (D | E | F)

    The 8th question.
    Could you help me please?
    Is "never had practised" the same as "had never practised"

    Thank you for any reply.

    This adverb of frequency should be :

    Before the lexical verb.
    I never smoke, I often saw him.

    So, between the auxiliary verb and the lexical verb.
    I will never accept. I have never seen that film.

    Before the auxiliary verb when it replaces the lexical verb in short answers or tags.
    Will you always love me? Yes I always will.
    Do you sometimes smoke? Yes, I sometimes do.

    He always complains. Does he? I never do.

    Behind to be.
    He is always late. He is often complaining.

    In your sentence he NEVER had practised, it would be a form of insistance.

    In British English, practice is a noun and to practise is a verb.
