Adverbs are normally not inflected. A few of them can however be inflected for
comparison, that is they have specific forms that denotes higher degree
(comparative) and highest degree (superlative) in a comparison.

(1)a.Henningkjørerfort.
Henningdrivesfast

b.Henningkjørerfortereenn Lise.
HenningdrivesfasterthanLise

c.Tiril kjører fortest.
Tirildrivesfastest
‘Tiril drives the fastest.’

Several of the adverbs that are inflected for comparison have a different root in
comparative and superlative than they have in the positive form.

Suffixes are often used to form adverbs. Among these suffixes we find:

(2)-vis:gradvis ‘gradually’
forsøksvis ‘tentatively’

-lig:egentlig ‘actually’
virkelig ‘really, truely’

-steds:noensteds ‘somewhere’
ingensteds ‘nowhere’

Compounding is a productive way to form adverbs. Especially common are the
prefixes der or sometimes her eller hvor followed by a preposition. Adverbs like
derav ‘of that,’ can be changed to av det.

(3)dertil

deretter

derimot

derfra

herav hvorav

‘to that,
there’

‘afterwards’ ‘on the other
hand’

‘from
there’

‘of
this’ ‘of (from) what,
which, whom’
