Could you please give me some very simple, easy-to-remember rules that would help me identify Verbs, Adverbs & Adjectives easier?

Thank you!

Very basic!
Verb = shows the action performed by the subject [keep in mind that not all verbs are really 'actions' as we normally think of them (sleep, like, taste, etc.)]

Adjectives & adverbs = words that serve to modify, or describe, another word [adj. modify nouns (a big house), adverbs modify verbs (I really like), adjectives (he's a very good boy) and other adverbs (he ran extremely fast).

when can adverb use as a sentence???

How adverb being modified???...

how important is the adverb???

what are the simple way to know more adverbs in daily life!!!?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
An adverb is rarely used as a sentence.

An adverb can be modified by another adverb.

The adverb is not very important compared to the verb and the noun.

There is no simple way to know more adverbs in daily life. You need a textbook, and you need to read and study it.


Verb: The studnet UNDERSTOOD the lession clearly.

Adjective: The lession is USUALLY simple.
Adverb: he spokes very quickly.
