List of Adverbs

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The following is a plain text list of adverbs that appear in the English language.

What is an Adverb?

An adverb is a word that modifies, or alters, another word. That word could be a verb, an adjective or even another adverb. Adverbs in the English language are usually easy to spot because of their use of the -ly ending. Words such as loudly, suspiciously, and undoubtedly are commonly used as adverbs. Such as “the man was suspiciously quiet as he drank his coffee.”

However remember that it is important to note that, though adverbs often have the -ly ending, they do not have to. Examples:

He often walks home.

Here the word “often” is modifying the verb walks.
