Transcript of Adverbs and Adjectives

Warm-up and Objective
Objective: Students will be able to identify and understand the meaning of both adverbs and adjectives.

Warm-up: What do you already know about adverbs and adjectives?
Adverb
An adverb is a word that describes - or modifies a verb, an adjective or another adverb. A verb is an action word (jump, run, swim, ski, fish, talk) An adjective is a descriptive word that describes a noun (pretty, happy, silly, sunny)
Examples of Adverbs
Many adverbs end in “-ly”. If you are not sure of the part of speech a word would be, and it ends with “-ly”, it is probably an adverb.

Examples include:

Financial

ly
, Sorrowful

, Beautiful

, Truthful

...etc.
Adjective
An adjective is a word or phrase naming an attribute, added to or grammatically related to a noun to modify or describe it. (A describing word)
Examples of Adjectives
1. Those flowers are
beautiful
.

2. She packed
fresh
carrots for lunch.

3. Ana's house was the
biggest
in the neighborhood.

4. That movie was the
funniest
that I've ever seen.


You can tell whether a word is an adjective or adverb by looking at the word that it modifies. This is very important in languages whose adverbs are invariable but whose adjectives need to agree in gender and number with the nouns and pronouns they modify.

1. The man ran so
quickly
he didn't even notice the tree in front of him.
