  6. 6. GRAMAR ADVERBS BEFORE AND ADVERBS Adjectives and adverbs Look at these examples: • Our holiday was too short - the time went very quickly. • The driver of the car was seriously injured in the accident. * Quickly and seriously are adverbs. Many adverbs are made from an adjective + -ly: Adjectiv e quick serious careful Quiet Adverb quickly seriously carefull y bad quietly badly Heavy Heavily Not all words ending in -ly are adverbs. Some adjectives end in -ly too, for example: Friendly / lively / elderly / lonely / silly / lovely Adjectives (quick/careful etc.) tell us about a noun. We use adjectives before nouns and after some verbs, especially be: • Tom is a careful driver, (not 'a carefully driver') • We didn't go out because of the heavy rain. • Please be quiet. • I was disappointed that my exam results were so bad. We also use adjectives after the verbs look/ feel/ sound etc. • Why do you always look so serious?
