Adverbs describe verbs (actions). They give more detail about the action.
  • My cat eats slowly.
Slowly is an adverb since it describes the way my cat eats.
How does my cat eat? Slowly.
Adverbs will generally answer the question 'How'.
Some adverbs are used to modify an adjective.
Adverbs that do this are: very, extremely, really, totally, absolutely, quite, fairly, well. These are normally placed before the adjective.
  • It was very hot yesterday.
  • He is totally crazy.
