Adverbs are words that modify
He drove slowly. (How did he drive?)
She moved quite slowly down the aisle.
(How slowly did she move?)
|Adverbs often tell when, where, why, or under what
conditions something happens or happened.
Adverbs frequently end in - ly
However, many words and phrases not ending in -ly serve an adverbial function and an -ly ending
is not a guarantee that a word is an adverb.
(The words lovely, lonely, motherly, friendly, neighborly, for instance, are adjectives.)
