Positions of Adverbs


To inquire about my classes, or for a trial lesson, email me at acewld@gmail.com


In previous posts we discussed what a directive adverb is. It is a verb that normally follows the verb it modifies. 

And of course, aside from modifying a verb, an adverb can also modify an adjective or another adverb

Take a look at the following examples.

Directive Adverb:  The elevator went down. (Where did the elevator go?) 

Adverb Modifying a Modifier: Mango is a very common fruit in the Philippines. (What kind of  fruit is  it?) 

In the sentence above, very is an adverb modifying the adjective common.

Other Adverbs: 

Suddenly, he turned and walked away. 

He suddenly turned and walked away. 

In the two sentences above, the word suddenly is an adverb modifying the verb turned.
