Transcript of 6th English Adverb Notes

6th English Ch. 3
Adverbs and Prepositions

Prepositions
shows the relationship b/t a noun/pronoun and another word in the sentence
preps answer: how? when? where?
Example:
Your book is
underneath
your coat.
*underneath tells you where the book is in relation to the coat
Preposition or Adverb?
Some words can be used as preposition or adverbs, so how do you tell the difference?
Remember, a preposition
ALWAYS
has at least one noun or pronoun as an object, and an adverb doesn't
Example:
Clouds gathered
above us
. (preposition)
Clouds gathered
above
. (adverb)
Prepositional Phrases
Prepositional phrases are made up of:
preposition + modifier (adjective) + object of the prepostion (noun/pronoun)
**A prep phrase doesn't always need a modifier
The OP usually follows the preposition
Example:
I bought a football
for my son
.
(for = prep, my = modifier, son = op)
Adverbs answer:
Where?
When?
How?
How often/long?
How much?
*copy chart from textbook p. 100-101 into your notes and include at least two examples for each adverb type
Adverb or Adjective?
If you're not sure if a word is an adjective or adverb, ask yourself what word it modifies
Position of Adverbs and Helpful Hint
adverbs can come before, after, or between the words they are describing
when an adverb modifies a verb phrase, it usually comes in the middle of the phrase
We
have

often

studied
together.
an adverb that intro's a question appears at the beginning
When
does school end?
adverbs often end in
-ly
but not always!
Adverbs
Adverbs
describes a verb, an adjective, or another adverb
makes the meaning of these words more definite
Ex: He ran
quickly
down the field.
*quickly tells you how he ran down the field (you don't have to have the word for the sentence to make sense)
