    • WHEN (rarely, later, immediately, often, usually)
    • WHERE (downstairs, below, here)
    EXAMPLE: The bandit ran quickly to his getaway car. ( Quickly describes the action verb ran .)

    • Before the verb : The guests often dined at that restaurant.
    • After the verb : The guests dined often at that restaurant.
    • At the beginning : Often guests dined at that restaurant.
    • At the end : Guests dined at that restaurant often .

    • COMPARATIVE form of an adverb compares two actions or things.
    • SUPERLATIVE form of an adverb compares more than two actions or things
  • Comparing One-Syllable Adverbs
    • For most adverbs of only 1 syllable, add –er to make the comparative form and –est to make the superlative form.
    • *EXAMPLE / COMPARATIVE : Ronald Reagan served longer as president than Jimmy Carter.
    • *EXAMPLE / SUPERLATIVE : Franklin Roosevelt served longest of any president.
  • Comparing Two-Syllable Adverbs
    • For adverbs that end in –ly or that have more than one syllable, use the word more to form the comparative and most to form the superlative .
    • *EXAMPLE / COMPARATIVE: Our class studied Roosevelt more thoroughly than Reagan.
    • *EXAMPLE / SUPERLATIVE: We studied Lincoln most thoroughly of all.

    Is not=isn’t Cannot= can’t Have not= haven’t Was not= wasn’t Could not= couldn’t Had not= hadn’t Were not= were’t Do not = don’t Would not= wouldn’t Will not = won’t Did not= didn’t Should not= shouldn’t

    • Lincoln hadn’t never gone to college.
    • Nobody didn’t get it right.
