ADVERBS of MANNER


Most of the adverbs answer the question HOW? and are called "adverbs of manner". They are usually formed adding -ly to an adjective:
- happy + -ly = happily
- He is a happy man
- He dances happily --> how does he dance? happily
- A slow train moves slowly
More adverbs of manner: calmly, beautifully, badly, nicely, strongly, sadly, softly, ridiculously, madly, quickly, etc.
But some adverbs of manner don't end in -ly:
- A fast train moves fast

- She walked across the living-room
- She quietly walked across the living-room
- She walked quietly across the living-room
- She walked across the living-room quietly
