Adverbs are used to add more information about a verb, an adjective, another adverb, a clause or a whole sentence.

Sometimes, adverbs also give or add more information about noun phrases.

Adverbs have many different functions and meanings but generally, they are used to indicate the time, manner, place, degree and frequency of something (Carter, McCarthy, Mark and O’Keeffe, 2011).


For example:

  • I always get up early on school days.
  • Walk carefully, the road is dangerous.
  • My mum always loses her car keys.
