Adverb

An adverb is a part of speech that modifies or describes a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. Adverbs often provide information about how, when, where, or to what degree an action is performed. They add details to sentences, helping to provide a clearer picture of the action or circumstance.

Here are some examples of adverbs in sentences:

  1. She sings beautifully. (Describes how she sings)

  2. They arrived late. (Describes when they arrived)

  3. He works extremely hard. (Describes the degree of his hard work)

  4. The dog ran quickly. (Describes how the dog ran)

  5. They live nearby. (Describes the location of their residence)

Adverbs can answer questions like "how," "when," "where," "why," and "to what extent." They play a crucial role in enhancing the meaning and precision of sentences in English.
