Recalling Adverbs

Let’s memorize the difference between verbs and adverbs. 

The primary distinction between verbs and adverbs is that verbs are action words, whereas adverbs are descriptive terms. Verbs describe the activity that a noun does, whereas adverbs describe how that action is carried out.

Ex: Henry is writing a lovely novel about the history of nature. 

Q) What is an Adverb?  

A term that describes a verb is called an adverb. It describes an action or the manner in which something is carried out. Many adverbs end in -ly.

Now Let’s study at the various categories of Adverb. 


It is a word that modifies a verb, an adjective, or a sentence as a whole. In other words, they are employed to demonstrate the properties of a verb or an adjective. Adverbs can modify another adverb in a sentence, which is a fascinating truth about them. 

Adverbs appear in several different forms, and they serve a variety of functions in sentence constructions. These include:

  1. She comes to my school every day. 
  1. The thief who has stolen my car was found nowhere
  1. In my university plants are everywhere in the garden. 

Adverbs of Degree: 

The intensity of the verb in the phrase is described by an adverb of degree. They’re usually utilized before a sentence’s primary verb.

  1. I almost finished my packing. 
  1. Michael is so excited to go for a cookout. 
  1. You hardly know about Jessy. 
  1. Henry’s grandmother is in extremely critical condition. 

Adverbs of Frequency: 

The frequency of the verb is indicated by an adverb of frequency. The majority of the time, they are employed to modify verbs. They usually come before the primary verb. 

Adverbs of Frequency include: 

Never, always, rarely, sometimes, normally, seldom, usually, again. 


  1. She will never accept your mistakes again. 
  1. We usually go for weekends with teammates.
