ADVERBS WITH EXAMPLES

Hello guys! Today we are going to learn Adverbs with examples and it's usage in a sentence and structure etc!

I hope, this will help some of grammar learners for sure!

so let's start!

CONCEPT OF ADVERBS :

DEFINITION:

An adverb is a word which adds to the meaning of a verb and tells how and where the thing is done.

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Prabh sang sweetly.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]My sister came yesterday.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Mohan is very intelligent.


KINDS OF ADVERB :

ADVERBS OF MANNER :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Loudly, honestly, bravely, wisely, foolishly etc.

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]The soldiers fought bravely.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]My father served honestly.

ADVERBS OF PLACE :

Outside, inside, everywhere, near, in, out, away, there etc.

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· I would like to go inside.

[if !supportLists]· There is a hotel nearby.

ADVERBS OF TIME :

Early, daily, presently, yesterday, tomorrow etc.

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]I go to school daily.

ADVERBS OF FREQUENCY :

Always, often, seldom, never, again etc

Examples :

ADVERBS OF DEGREE :

“Very, quite, entirely, partly, almost, much etc”

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]She is very beautiful.

INTERROGATIVE ADVERBS :

What, which, when, why, where, how, much, how often etc.

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]How often do you visit market?

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Where did he go?

The position of the Adverb in a sentence :

SUBJECT + ADVERB + MAIN VERB

(We place adverb of frequency before main verb (expect with “To be”)

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]I always remember to do my homework.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]He normally gets good marks in exams.

An adverb of frequency goes after the verb “To be”

SUBJECT+TO BE+ADVERB

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]They are never pleased to see me.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]She is not usually bad tempered.

When we use an auxiliary verb/models (have, will, must, might, could, would, can, etc), the adverb is placed between the auxiliary and the main verb.

SUBJECT + AUXILIARY + ADVERB + MAIN VERB

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]She can sometimes beat me in a race.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]They might never see each other again.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]They could occasionally be heard laughing.

[if !supportLists]· [endif]I would hardly ever be unkind to someone.

There are some adverbs we can use at the starting of a sentence:

Usually, normally, often, frequently, sometimes, occasionally

Example :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Occasionally, I like to eat Italian food.

But we cannot use the following at the beginning of a sentence:

Always, seldom, rarely, hardly, ever, never

We use ’ ever’ in questions and negative statements:

Examples :

[if !supportLists]· [endif]Have you ever been to New Zealand?

[if !supportLists]· [endif]I haven’t ever been to Switzerland.
