Types of adverbs and adverbs of manner

pic15_Gr_act|Pre-Int|L16


Already, quickly, and always are different kinds of adverbs. They give information about time, manner and frequency.

Adjectives describe nouns (things and people).

✔️ She has a quiet voice. It’s a noisy dog.

They often answer questions with What …?

Adverbs of manner describe how people do things.

✔️ She speaks quietly. The dog barks noisily.

They often answer questions with How …?

Most adjectives change to adverbs of manner like this:

Most regular adjectives Adjectives ending in -y Adjectives ending in -ble
+ly -ily -bly
nice → nicely angry → angrily comfortable → comfortably

There are some irregular adverbs of manner.

✔️ good → well

He’s a good swimmer. → He swims well.

fast → fast

She’s a fast runner. → She runs fast.

hard → hard

They’re hard workers. → They work hard.

We usually use adverbs after verbs.

✔️ She sings beautifully.

However, we use adjectives after the verbs be, seem, become, get, look, feel, taste, smell and sound.

✔️ Her voice sounds beautiful.

You’ll get hungry.


Comparison of adverbs

We make the comparative and superlative of most adverbs by adding more and the most before the adverb.

✔️ Polly did her homework more quickly than me.

Kate spoke the most confidently.

Some short adverbs have a comparative form with -er and -est, like adjectives. For example: early, fast, hard, late, long, loud.

✔️ Paul arrived earlier than me.

The journey took longer than normal.

Toby ran the fastest.

There are some irregular adverbs:

well better the best
badly worse the worst
little less the least

We can also use not as … as … with adverbs.

✔️ I didn’t do as well as Jim in the exam.

The book doesn’t explain it as clearly as our teacher.
