Adjectives or Adverbs
Before you choose whether to use adjectives or adverbs in a sentence, read the rules.
|An adjective describes a noun. We put the adjective before the noun. We can also use an adjective alone after the verb to be.|
Example: This is an interesting book. The book is interesting.
|An adverb describes a verb. It shows how, when, where or how often somebody does something. We usually put the adverb after the verb.|
Example: He drives slowly.
Adverbs of frequency go before the main verb, but after the verb to be.
Example: He never gets up late. He is never late for work.
Adverbs of manner show how the action is performed. We form them by adding the suffix – ly after an adjective.
Example: slow – slowly; careful – carefully; angry – angrily
There are some irregular adverbs of manner. They are: good – well; hard -hard; fast – fast
