Transcript of Adverbs

Presentation by:
Eshika, Amber
and Jack Adverbs Adverbs can be really
tough you know,
but all you have to do is
remember a few things. Most Adverbs end in -ly. Adverbs describe words,
adjectives, or other adverbs. An adverb tells how, when, where, and to what extent.There are two types of adverbs: comparative and superlative. Let's get started! What are Adverbs? Examples:
She carefully walked along the edge of the pier.
The fox swiftly ran across the forest.
Bob has a dark red boat.
She certainly drives slow in that old car of hers. ADVERBS I modify a verb, adjective,
or other adverb. I usually end in -ly but
I don't have to. How An adverb can tell how something happened. The fire spread quickly.
I landed awkwardly when I fell
off the trampoline. When An adverb can tell when something happened. We are leaving tomorrow.
Justin always talks about his helicopters. An adverb can tell where something happened. Where My best friend lives nearby.
Please go there and give Maria all of your dinosaurs. Sources: http://www.grammaropolis.com/adverb.php

5. The bright lights flashed colorfully. Comparative and
Superlative Adverbs Like adjectives, adverbs in English have three degrees:
1. Positive adverbs(already learned)
2. Comparative Adverbs
3.Superlative adverbs Comparative Adverbs Comparative adverbs are used to compare two qualities.The comparative adverb of softly is more softly. The comparative adverb of hard is harder.A general rule is that if the word has more than one syllable, you add more to the beginning. Superlative Adverbs Superlative adverbs are used to indicate that one modified word has a quality to a greater or lesser degree than two or more others. In other words, Superlative adverbs are a comparison between three or more adverbs. Just like comparative adverbs, the general rule is that if the word is more than one syllable, you add most to the beginning. The superlative adverb of softly is most softly and the superlative adverb of hard is hardest. Let's practice! Underline the adverb and write if it is positive , comparative or superlative. 1. Elliot Ness works more quietly than Jessica Yan does.
2. Of the three drivers, Ishika drives the most carefully.
3. Katie works more happily than she used to.
4. Sarah shouted angrily at her sister.
5. Eshika sings the most happily of all the girls in the group.
