Study Guide Modifiers-Adverbs English Language Arts, Grade 8

MODIFIERS ADVERBS What is an Adverb? A word that modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb is called an adverb. Modify means to change. Since adverbs change the meanings of verbs and adjectives, adverbs are also called modifiers. Adverbs answer the questions: How? When? Where? or To What Extent? Many adverbs end in the letters -ly. When two actions are being compared, the comparative form of the adverb is used. When three or more actions are being compared, the superlative form of the adverb is used. When using the comparative and the superlative form of adverbs, be careful to avoid double comparisons (e.g. use ‘fastest’ rather than ‘most fastest’).
