What is an Adverb?
Put simply, an adverb is a word that modifies the verb. It often comes directly before or after the verb and gives important detail in a sentence. It tells the reader when or how something is happening. She quickly ran home, or his bird sang quietly are examples of adverbs within a sentence. Because of these adverbs, we know that the girl was moving with haste and that the bird was singing with a soft voice. Adverbs change sentences for the better and enhance writing to make it more vivid. They’re an important part of English and should be worked on daily!
