AdjectivesandAdverbs

1. Many adverbs end in -ly, but some do not. Generally, if a word can have -ly added to its adjective form, put it there to form an adverb.2. Adverbs that answer the question how can sometimes cause problems with you sentance. It can be hard to determine if -ly should be attached. Avoid the ploy of -ly with linking verbs like taste, smell, look, feel, That apply to the senses. Adverbs are misplaced regularly in these sentences, so they depend upon adjectives instead.

3. The word good is an adjective, but it has an equivalent adverb, it is well. 4. The word well can be an adjective, too. When you are implying to health, we generally use well rather than good.5. There are also three degrees of adverbs. In explicit usage, do not drop the -ly from an adverb when using the comparative form.

Adjectives come in three forms, also called degrees. An adjective in its normal or usual form is called a positive degree adjective. There are also the comparative and superlative degrees, which are used for comparison, as in the following examples:PositiveComparativeSuperlativesweetsweetersweetestbadworseworstefficientmore efficientmost efficientA common error in using adjectives and adverbs arises from using the wrong form of comparison. To compare two things, always use a comparative adjective:Example: She is the cleverer of the two women (never cleverest)The word cleverest is what is called the superlative form of clever. Use it only when comparing three or more things:Example: She is the cleverest of them all.Incorrect: Chocolate or vanilla: which do you like best?Correct: Chocolate or vanilla: which do you like better?

7. When this, that, these, and those are pursued by a noun, they are adjectives. When they appear without a noun following them, they are pronouns.Examples:This building is for lease.This is an adjective.This is for lease.This is a pronoun.
