List of Most Important Adverbs

Adverbs are a paramount part of speech. An adverb is a word that describes or indicates the degree of action verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. They tell us more about a verb, adjective, clause, or another adverb.

An adverb indicates manner, time, place, cause or degree and it usually answers questions such as how? where? when? how often? and how much?.

Examples:
She speaks softly. (How does she speak?)
I saw the movie recently. (When did you see the movie?)
They are talking outside. (Where are they talking?)
