MAIN ADVERBS IN ENGLISH


An adverb is a word used to modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Adverbs are like the seasoning in sentences. They help describe how things appear and how things happen. They help a reader see action in his mind’s eye and paint pictures with words. Adverbs help you control what others see when you speak or write. Many adverbs end in “ly,” but don’t think that all adverbs end in “ly” or that all words that end in “ly” are adverbs.
