What is an Adverb?
Adverbs are words that modify verbs, adjectives, or even other adverbs by indicating when, why, where, or how something happened; in other words, adverbs are needed to explain conditions under which events occur.
For example: I watch movies rather often.
Tomorrow, I will bring you the book you were asking for.
Adverbs are usually used together with verbs and adjectives. Depending on this, they can stand in different positions.
Adverb + Verb Positions
1. Front (the adverb is placed before the subject):
e.g. Yesterday, I came home late.
2. Middle (the adverb is located between the subject and verb):
e.g. I always do my best to help my friends.
3. End (the adverb is placed after a verb or object):
e.g. Please, read the assignment attentively.
Adverb + Adjective
In this case, adverbs are usually placed in front of an objective.
e.g. I look really businessy in my new suit.
Types of Adverbs (examples)
Yesterday, tomorrow, today, often, regularly, always
