  7. 7. www.englishexamninja.com Useful to know Adverbs: a word or phrase that modifies the meaning of an adjective, verb, or other adverbs, expressing manner, place, time, or degree (e.g. gently, here, now, very ). Some adverbs, for example sentence adverbs, can also be used to modify whole sentences) An adverb clause is a group of words that function as an adverb. The clause can modify verbs, adverbs, and adjectives by telling when, where, why, how, how much and under what condition. They begin with a subordinating conjunction (such as after, if, because and although) and they contain a subject and a predicate. Adverbs that tell us how often express the frequency of an action. They are usually placed before the main verb but after auxiliary verbs (such as be, have, may, & must). The only exception is when the main verb is "to be", in which case the adverb goes after the main verb (today,yesterday, tomorrow) A preposition of time helps to link the noun or pronoun with a time value. It functions as an indicator as to what point of time did an event occur. ex: I wake up at 7 o'clock. We will see you on Tuesday. I was born in 1419 I often feel tired in the afternoon
