Adverbs

Adverbs are words that modify verbs, adjectives, or another adverb. Adverbs often describe when, where, why, or under what circumstances something happened. Adverbs often end in -ly, however there are many words not ending in -ly that serve as adverbs. For example, the words lovely, lonely, motherly, and friendly are adjectives.

When a group of words containing a subject and a verb act as an adverb (modifying another verb in the sentence) it is called an adverb clause. For example, "When this game is over, we're going home for dinner."
