English adverbs

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

English Adverbs describe a verb more precisely. Furthermore, compositions of nouns and prepositions are adverbs. A distinction can be made between two types of adverbs, the original adverbs and those formed from an adjective.

[vc_empty_space height=”36px”]

How the English adverbs are formed from an adjective:

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

To do this, you will have to attach an “-ly” to your adjective end

 

Example: adverb of “love“:

love – lovely

On the other hand, the original adverbs do not have to be formed logically ?

Special features of the English adverbs

In addition, there are few adverbs that have no progressive form. These include, for example, “next” and “last”.

Progression of English adverbs:

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

The Progression in English adverbs is identical to the progression in adjectives. For this you need to form the comparative to which you attach an “-er”. And the superlative to which you attach a “-est”.

 

However, the adverbs that end with “ly” are progressed with more and most

These are mainly adjectives that have been formed into adverbs.

The position of an English adverb within a sentence:

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

In English there are fixed rules where an adverb stands, this depends mainly on what the adverb says.

[vc_empty_space height=”36px”]

Adverbs of Manner:

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

They describe the way an action is performed. (easily, …) Here most adverbs end in “-ly”.

 

The 3 Representations of the Adverbs of Manner:

At the beginning of the sentence:

If a frame of the following sentence is to be created. However, this is followed by a comma.

Silently, she left the classroom.

 

Before the main verb or after the first auxiliary verb:

Here, the emphasis is on the verb. They are usually behind the main verb, as long as there is no object.

 

At the end of the sentence:

He went to school quickly.

[vc_empty_space height=”36px”]

English Adverbs of frequency:

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

These adverbs indicate how often the act is done (often, weekly, once, …). Just like the Adverbs of Manner, these too can be represented in 3 different places.

 

The 3 representations of the English adverbs of the frequency:

At the beginning of the sentence:

If you want to create a time frame, the adverb will be at the beginning of the sentence. As usual, the adverb is separated with a comma.

Usually, the teacher teach us.

 

Before the main verb or after the first auxiliary verb:

If they are indefinite frequencies (often, …).

Once the main verb is to be, the adverb will be behind it.

 

At the end of the sentence:

Here is a certain frequency of the adverb: (once, weekly, monthly, …).

In contrast to other adverbs, once they are at the end of the sentence, place before time, or place adverbs first and finally time adverbs.

English Adverbs of time and place

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

These adverbs can stand both at the beginning and at the end of the sentence. As soon as a time adverb and a place adverb are at the end of the sentence, the following applies: “place before time”!

I was in school last week.

[vc_empty_space height=”36px”]

English Degree Adverb

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

These adverbs express reinforcement, mitigation, or restriction (almost, completely, greatly …). Also the English Degree Adverb can take 3 different positions.

 

The 3 modes of representation of the English degree adverbs:

At the end of the sentence:

He learned the English vocabulary a little bit.

 

Before the main verb or after the first auxiliary verb:

1. METHOD:

In case of a reinforcement.

He greatly learned the English vocabulary.

Exception: almost, nearly -> are always behind the first auxiliary verb.

 

2. METHOD:

Within a restriction.

Description of an adjective:

In a description of an adjective, the adverb stands directly in front of the adjective.

About me

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

Hey, I used to think that language learning was innate. Either you can speak English or not and it doesn’t matter how much you learn -“Anyway I don’t record good grades in English.” And that’s where English is so important.

 

After a while, I gave myself one last chance to learn English. Only this time I limited myself to the essential points.

For me, that meant verbs: formation – examples – signal words & usage

This method enabled me to learn English faster than ever before.

 

Since then I know that learning languages is not innate. And through that realization, my vision has become to offer other students the opportunity to learn English, just like I did back then. Now I ask you to help me by sharing this article with your friends!

Thank you very much!
