Adverbs tell us more about verbs. Like adjectives, they make our writing more interesting. For example: The athlete ran quickly. “Quickly” tells us how the athlete ran, and is an adverb of manner. Other adverbs of manner include: angrily, calmly, busily, greedily, politely. Adverbs of manner are formed from adjectives, but to form an adverb you add –ly. A few exceptions of adverbs that don’t end in –ly are: well, straight, hard, fast.
Adverbs of place tell us where something happened/is happening/will happen, for example: The visitors went inside. Other examples of adverbs of manner are: there, here, forwards, nearby.
Adverbs of time tell us when something happened/is happening/will happen, for example: It will rain tonight. Other examples of adverbs of manner are: now, yesterday, monthly, hourly.
