Lesson 62 - Parts of Speech - Adverbs

View lesson on Daily Grammar

Adverbs are words that modify (1) verbs, (2) adjectives, and (3) other adverbs. They tell how (manner), when (time), where (place), how much (degree), and why (cause). Why is a common one-word adverb that tells why. 
 
Adverbs that tell us how, when, where, and why always modify the verb. Adverbs that tell us how much modify adjectives or other adverbs. These adverbs are also called qualifiers because they strengthen or weaken the words they modify.

      Examples: 
      He kicked the ball solidly. (how)
      He kicked the ball immediately. (when)
      He kicked the ball forward. (where)
      He kicked the ball too hard. (how much)

Instructions: These sentences have adverbs that modify the verb and tell us when. Find the adverbs and tell what they modify.
