ADJECTIVES

Adjectives are describing words. They tell you more about nouns.

ADVERBS

Adverbs are words that modify a verb (ad-verb; ad: near)

adverbs often answer three questions : How? When? Where?

external image 19753.gif Tom drives slowly. we know 'how' he drives (drive:verb)

external image 19754.gif It rained yesterday. we know 'when' it rained (rain: verb)

external image 14559.gif Jim is falling downstairs. we know 'where' he is falling (fall: verb)

ADVERBS ending with the suffix -ly

---- Adverbs are often formed by adding ly to an adjective

slow => slowly beautiful => beautifully

tip: not all words ending in -ly are used as adverbs: friendly, kindly and lonely are adjectives as well

---- do not use 'very' with adjectives like excellent , extremely, fantastic

( if something is excellent or perfect there is nothing better, so you can't say very excellent or very perfect)
