Adverbs

 

Basic of English Grammar – Beginner Lesson 8

 

Adverbs modify a verb, an adjective, or another adverb.

 

An adverb tells more about a verb in the sentence.

  • The fire engine runs fast.

  • Listen to his speech carefully.

  • I browse the web frequently.

  • It rained hard.

An adverb describes more about an adjective in the sentence.

  • The news is very surprising!

  • The coffee is extremely hot, so be careful.

  • Nature is really amazing!

An adverb modifies another adverb in the sentence.

  • It rains very hard.

  • Computers run much faster these days.

  • I clean my room less frequently because I am busy.

Commonly, adjectives can be changed to adverbs by adding ‘ly’.

  • slow – slowly

  • quick – quickly

  • comfortable – comfortably

  • loud – loudly

  • clear – clearly

To change adjectives ending in ‘y’ into adverbs, change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add ‘ly’.

  • happy – happily

  • easy – easily
