An adverb is a word used to modify a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. For example:

      • She swims quickly. 
      • She is an extremely quick swimmer.

When an adverb modifies a verb, it usually tells us how, when, where, how often, and how much the action is performed. Here are some examples of adverbs modifying verbs:

  • How: He ran quickly.
  • When: He ran yesterday.
  • Where: He ran here.
  • How often: He ran daily.
  • How much: He ran fastest.

In the examples above, every adverb is a single word, but an adverb can be made up of more than one word. For example:

  • How: He ran at 10 miles per hour.
  • When: He ran when the police arrived.
  • Where: He ran to the shops.
  • How often: He ran every day.
  • How much: He ran quicker than me.
