A verb shows WHAT something or someone is doing. It describes an action or state of being. You can't have a sentence without using a verb! There are so many different types of verbs: run, walk, play, cook, speak, type (which is what I'm doing right now!)
Adverbs come in many different forms: adverb of time, adverb of frequency, adverb of place, adverb of manner, adverb of degree.
In the example above, we're talking about adverb of manner. It shows HOW something happens. It provides more detail to a reader about the verb.
For example, I can say, " I read QUICKLY" or "I read SLOWLY"
These provide the reader with different ideas of how I read. Adverbs of manner can provide useful details to a sentence.
Adverbs of manner are usually formed by adding '-ly' to an adjective and is often placed after a verb or object.
Can you think of any other adverbs of manner?
