Transcript of Adverbs and Adjectives
English 102 .005 Adverbs Vs. Adjectives Adverbs Adjectives Adjectives tell us about nouns. Adjectives also tell us about people and things. Adverbs- are used to modify
verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs
Adjectives- are used to modify
nouns Bibliography Adverbs give information on how something happens or how something is done. Example-
He easily climbed the wall.
Clinton ran quickly. Many English adverbs
end in -ly. Adverbs are
often made by adding
-ly to the end of an adjective. Examples-
My test was easy.
That movie was bad. Be Careful! Sometimes adjectives end in -ly! You can't rely on every word ending in -ly to be an adverb. Examples-
Lonely Jack easily lifted the weights Ask yourself: How did he lift the weights? Answer: Easily is an adverb Adverbs answer any of the following questions about verbs.
How? When? Where? Why? We will use the new computer program tomorrow.
Ask yourself: When will we use it?
Answer: Tomorrow functions as an adverb Adjectives describe taste, touch, sound color, size, shape, time, amount, emotion, personality, appearance, and situations. Adjectives Touch Sound Taste Bitter Tasty Sweet Fluffy Smooth Sharp Deafening Silent Faint Comparative Adverbs more quietly
more happily Adding an –er to the end will transform a regular adverb into a comparative one. Lance runs fast but Matt runs faster.
The cat is quick but the mouse is quicker. Other times the words more and less will need to precede the adverb to form the comparative. Superlative Adverbs most quietly
All you have to do to form the superlative of adverbs that end in –ly is precede them with most or least. If the adverb has the same form as a one-syllable adjective simply add the suffix –est to the end of the word. Barry slept the longest.
Stephen finished the quickest. The comparative form of an adjective is used for comparing two people or things Example- He is taller than me.
The superlative is used for comparing one person or thing with every other member of their group
Example- He was the tallest boy in the class. "Adjectives." Adjectives. N.p., n.d. Web. 31 Mar. 2013. <http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/adjectives.htm>.
