Away , here , up , there Adverb of time I’ll see you tomorrow When ? Later , now , soon Adverb of frequency I never arrive late How often?! Always , usually , forever Adverb of degree It was too hot! Extremely, so , very , almost How much?
  • Many adverbs are formed by adding –ly to an adjective Adjective slow beautiful Adverb slowly beautifully quietly quiet easy specific easily specifically Note : There are some adjectives also end in –ly, including costly, manly, deadly, friendly, lively, and timely. These are not adverbs
  • Where is the adjective and where is the adverb? I’ll catch the early train. I woke up early this morning. This is the adj. because it comes before the noun. This is the adv. because it comes after the verb.
  • Position of adverbs : Adverb of manner : -It comes after the verb or at the end of the sentence. She walks quietly out of the house. Their teacher speaks quietly. Adverb of time : -It usually comes at the end of the sentence. I will tell you the story tomorrow. -But if you want to emphasize the time you should put it at the beginning of the sentence. Tomorrow, I will tell you the story . Adverb of place : -It comes after the direct object. I didn’t see him here. -If there is no object it comes after the main verb. He stayed behind.
  • Adverb of degree : - It comes before what it modifies. The exam was extremely difficult . It was quite hot. Adverb of frequency : -It comes before the main verb. I always get up at 6:00. -Or between the auxiliary and the main verb. He doesn’t always play tennis. Mandy can usually play football on Sundays. -Or after the verb to be. Susan is never late. -The adverbs normally, usually, sometimes and occasionally can go at the beginning of the sentence. Sometimes, I go swimming.
