Adverb can be formed by adding the suffix “-ly” to adjectives

e.g. quick → quickly

All the adverbs do not end in “-ly.”

Some adverbs have irregular forms

e.g. fast, well.


Adverbs can appear in various positions within a sentence. They can be placed before the verb, after the verb, or at the beginning or end of a sentence. However, there are specific rules for adverb placement depending on the type of adverb and the sentence structure.


Like adjectives, some adverbs can be compared to show degrees of comparison. Most one-syllable adverbs and some two-syllable adverbs use the -er/-est endings for comparison, while others use “more” and “most” for comparative and superlative forms.


Adverbs add precision and detail to sentences, allowing writers to convey information more accurately and vividly. They can modify a wide range of words and are essential for providing context and nuance in language.

Understanding adverbs and their various functions can enhance communication skills and help individuals express themselves more effectively in both spoken and written language.
