 Adverbs
What are adverbs?
1
 
Adverbs are words that tell us more about verbs....they
add 
information tothe verb.(A verb is a 'doing' word or a 'being' word, e.g. 'walk', 'feel')Using adverbs makes your sentences more interesting.Any verb you use can have an
adverb
added.The girl smiled
nervously
.The boy grinned
sheepishly
.The light shone
feebly
.We use adverbs:
to say
how
something happens'The family walk 
(how?)
 
quickly
.'
to say
where
or 
when
something happens'I met him
(when?)
 
yesterday
.'
to say
how often
something happens'She gets the bus
(how often?)
 
daily
.'
to make the meaning of an adjective, adverb or verb
stronger
or 
weaker
 'Dave eats
(degree?)
 
more slowly
than his wife.'Adverbs are often created from adjectives (describing words that tell youmore about nouns) by adding 'ly' to the end of the adjective.e.g.
slow
becomes
slowly
 'Joe is a
slow
person. He walks
slowly
.'Certain words change when they become adverbs. If an adjective ends in a'y' you need to change the 'y' to an 'i' before adding 'ly'.
Happy
becomes
happily
 
Heavy
becomes
heavily
