LEARN ABOUT ADVERBS

An adverb can modify a VERB, an ADJECTIVE, another adverb, a PHRASE, or a CLAUSE. An adverb indicates manner, time, place, cause, or degree and answers questions such as "how," "when," "where," "how much".
While some adverbs can be identified by their characteristic "ly" suffix, most of them must be identified by untangling the grammatical relationships within the SENTENCE or clause as a whole. Unlike an adjective, an adverb can be found in various places within the sentence.


EXAMPLE OF ADVERB IN A PASSAGE;

The seamstress quickly made the mourning clothes.
In this sentence, the adverb "quickly" modifies the verb "made" and indicates in what manner (or how fast) the clothing was constructed.

The midwives waited patiently through a long labour.
Similarly in this sentence, the adverb "patiently" modifies the verb "waited" and describes the manner in which the midwives waited.

The boldly spoken words would return to haunt the rebel.
In this sentence the adverb "boldly" modifies the adjective "spoken."

We urged him to dial the number more expeditiously.
Here the adverb "more" modifies the adverb "expeditiously."

Unfortunately, the bank closed at three today.
