Transcript of Adverbs

Another type of word that acts as an adverb is an
adverbial noun
. They act as an adverb by being used to describe a verb and are used to express time, distance, measure, value, or direction. An example is:
On Saturday, Johnny spent 2
at the park playing football with his dad.
Adverbs can also come into sentences as adverb phrases and clauses. An
adverb phrase
acts as a prepositional phrase that describes a verb, adjective, or adverb while an
adverb clause
is a dependent clause that acts as an adverb. Examples of when these things come into sentences are:
Many parents go
to the park

to enjoy a picnic

during the weekend

Many kids enjoy the swings
unless they are scared of heights.
An adverb helps tell when,
where, why, or under
what condition something
happens or happened.
An adverb is a word
that is used to describe
a verb, an adjective,
or another adverb.
Types of Adverbs:
-Adverb of Time
-Adverb of Place
-Adverb of Manner
-Adverb of Degree
-Adverb of Affirmation
-Adverb of Negation
-Interrogative Adverbs
adverb of time
tells when or how often something happens. An example of this is:
Sally goes to the park after she finishes her homework on Tuesdays'
adverb of place
tells where. These include words that are found in sentences like:
adverb of manner
tells how or in what manner. Many adverbs of manner are the most common type of adverbs and are usually formed by an adjective with the addition of -ly. In the sentence,
, she climbed the rock wall and cheered
as she reached the top.", carefully and excitedly are adverbs of manner.
adverb of affirmation
tells whether a statement is positive or expresses consent or approval. Here is an example of where a adverb of affirmation is used:
loves the animals of nature because she will always lay in the grass and watch the birds and insects fly by.
adverb of degree
tells how much or how little. These types of adverbs appear in sentences like:
She very
goes on the monkey bars because of her fear of falling.
Extra Rules:
There are many types of adverbs that can be used in different ways to describe many different things.
The most commonly known adverbs are ones that end in -ly but those are not all of them.
They can almost always be placed anywhere in the sentence.
When using adverbs to compare objects, you have to use their comparative and superlative forms. The comparative and superlative forms of most adverbs ending in -ly are formed by the addition of more or most before the adverb. Many adverbs that don`t end in -ly are formed with the addition of -er or -est at the end of the word. Although most follow these rules there are still a few irregular comparisons with words like well and little. The following words are examples of these forms:
-carefully more(or less) carefully, most(or least) carefully
-fast faster, fastest
An adverb is a word used to modify something,
it is placed in a sentence to make it interesting.
A verb and adjective are words it describes,
along with types of adverbs and words like bribe.
There are many types of adverbs like time and negation,
two more types are manner and affirmation.
Place and degree are used with pride
and adverbial nouns come along for the ride.
Adverbs answer who, when and how;
they answer the question when there is doubt.
Most are formed with the ending of -ly,
although saying all do would be a lie.
Adverbs can be used to interrogate or question;
helping you determine the where and why of a situation.
An adverb comes into the sentence to help spice it up;
and gives a boring sentence an extra, special touch!
A Day at the Park
, she slides speedily
the slide
and jumps
off the swings.
adverb of negation
, the opposite of affirmation, expresses a negative condition or refusal. These are used in sentences like:
She does
like it when it rains during the week because it makes the playground wet and slippery.
interrogative adverb
is used to ask a question. The interrogative adverbs are used to express or to query reason, place, time, or method. These adverbs are how, when, why, or where. An example of a sentence where an interrogative adverb is being used is:
do you spend your time at a park?
Voyages in English
Here is a tune
