What are the different types of adverbs?
Most adverbs tell us 'how', 'in what way', 'when', 'where' and 'to what extent' something is done. In other words, they describe the manner, place, frequency, or time of an action.
Here are some examples:
i) He speaks 'slowly'.
('Slowly' is an adverb of manner, it answers: HOW does he speak?)
ii) She lived 'there'.
('There' is an adverb of place, it answers: WHERE did she live?)
iii) We'll leave 'tonight'.
('Tonight' is an adverb of time, is answers: WHEN will we leave?)
iv). She 'never' goes out late.
('Never' is an adverb of frequency, it answers: HOW OFTEN does she go out late?)
