What is an adverb?

Well you know that an adjective is a word that describes a noun eg. The car is blue. The car (noun) is blue (adjective).

An adverb is like an adjective but instead of describing a noun (person, place or thing) it describes a verb (an action) An adverb tells us HOW something was done.

For example:

He eats slowly. Eats is the verb (action) and slowly is the adverb which describes how he eats.

They slept badly. Slept (sleep) is the verb (action) and badly is the adverb which describes the action.

She runs fast. Runs of course is the verb (action) and fast is the adverb which describes how she runs.

How to create an adverb of manner

To make adverbs of manner, we usually add -ly to the adjective. For example,

  • quick – quickly
  • careful – carefully
  • gentle – gently

When an adjective ends in -y we change the -y to -i then add -ly. For example,

  • happy – happily
  • greedy – greedily
  • easy – easily

***However, there are also some irregular adverbs:***

  • good – well
  • hard – hard
  • fast – fast
  • late – late
  • straight – straight
  • high – high
