  • Re page 5: there is nothing wrong with saying 'She is a very beautiful woman'.
    Very can be used to emphasize adjectives and adverbs. Collins Cobuild English Usage gives these examples: '... a very small child.' I also don't think it is an Americanism as we ion New Zealand follow British English

Adverbs Of Frequency!!!!!

  1. 1. Universidad San Buenaventura de Cali <br />Adverbs of frequency<br />Yezid Giraldo Ramos<br />
  2. 2. What are adverbs?<br />An adverb indicates manner, time, place, cause, or degree and answers questions such as "how," "when," "where," "how much".<br />(http://www.writingcentre.uottawa.ca/hypergrammar/adverbs.html)<br />Personal definition<br />The adverb is the only word that can join to a verb to modify it.<br />
  3. 3. Adverbs of frequency<br />They tell us how often somebody does something.<br />Example: George always play tennis on saturdays!!<br />
  4. 4. Adverbs modify verbs. They tell you How something is done. <br />Example:How does he she sing? - She sings beautifully.<br />Rule:Adverbs are often formed by adding -ly to an adjective <br />Example: beautiful - beautifully, careful - carefully<br />Be Careful! <br />
  5. 5. Some adjectives don't change in the adverb form. The most important of these are: fast - fast, hard - hard <br />Good is probably the most important exception. The adverb form of 'good' is 'well'. Unfortunately, this is a common mistake that many Americans make! <br />NOT!!: He plays tennis good. <br />Rule:Adverbs can also modify an adjective. In this case, the adverb is placed before the adjective. <br />Example: She is extremely happy. They are absolutely sure.<br />Be Careful! <br />Do not use 'very' with adjectives that express an increased quality of a basic adjective Example:good - fantastic<br />NOT!!: She is a very beautiful woman. <br />Rule:Adverbs of frequency (always, never, sometimes, often, etc.) usually come before the main verb <br />Example: He is often late for class. Do you always eat in a restaurant? They don't usually travel on Fridays.<br />Be Careful! <br />
  6. 6. Adverbs of frequency expressing infrequency are not usually used in the negative or question form. NOT!!: Does she rarely eat fish? They don't seldom go to the cinema. <br />Adverbs of frequency are often placed at the beginning of a sentence. Example:Sometimes, he likes to go to museums.<br />Adverbs of frequency follow - come after - the verb 'to be'. Example:He is sometimes late for work.<br />
  7. 7. Comparison<br />The adverbs of frequency they tell us how often somebody does something<br />Example: Martin nevergoes to park in week<br />The quantifiers are words that are used to state quantity or amount of something without stating the actually number. <br />Example: I know a little English. He know enoughEnglish. <br />
