The position of " around" Hello, everyone !! Here I have a sentence that confusing me a little: There is no shortage of tipsters around offering " get'-rich-quick" opportunities. Could I pick " around" last in this sentence to say: There is no shortage of tipsters offering " get'-rich-quick" opportunities around. Thanks in advance : D

No - it's better where it is. The word 'around' is connected to the verb 'to be' : There is (no shortage of tipsters) around. If you put it at the end it would be confusing, and would look like it referred to the opportunities.
