What is an Adverb?
An ‘Adverb’ is simply a word that describes a verb (an action or doing word) He ate his breakfast quickly. The word ‘quickly’ is an adverb as it tells us how he ate his breakfast (the verb) his breakfast.
Here is a list of some commonly used adverbs:
accidentally, angrily, brightly, cheerfully, deliberately, eventually, exactly, finally, fortunately, frequently, happily
What do adverbs do?
When an adverb modifies a verb, it tells us how, when, why, where, how often, how much, the action is performed. Here are some examples of adverbs modifying verbs:
How: She ran quickly
When: She ran yesterday
Where: She ran here
How often: She ran daily
How much: She ran the fastest
Adverbs that do not end in ‘ly’
When beginners first learn about adverbs, they are often told that adverbs end “-ly” and modify verbs. That is, of course, true, but adverbs do far more than that description suggests. Here are three key points about adverbs:
- (Point 1) Adverbs modify verbs, but they can also modify adjectives and other adverbs.
- She sang an insanely sad song extremely well.
- (Point 2) Although many adverbs end “-ly,” lots do not.
- fast, never, well, very, most, least, more, less, now, far, there
- (Point 3) In real-life sentences, lots of adverbs are phrases or clauses (i.e., not single words).
- Single-Word Adverb -Sell it quickly.
- Adverbial Phrase Sell it as soon as possible
- Adverbial Clause – Sell it before the market closes.
