Adverbs from A-Z with Examples

Gathered by: AnnaBelle

What is an Adverb

An adverb is a part of speech. It is any word that modifies any part of language other than a noun. Adverbs can modify verbs, adjectives (including numbers), clauses, sentences and other adverbs. Adverbs typically answer questions such as how?, in what way?, when?, where?, and to what extent?. Adverbs of manner describe how something happens. Where there are two or more verbs in a sentence, adverb placement affects the meaning.

Examples of Adverbs
