Act #6: Calorie Count


An adverb is a word that qualifies the action of the verb, that is, it specifies how or when the action is performed. In English, many adverbs are indicated by the -ly ending. In French, most adverbs end in -ment:

lentement slowly
attentivement carefully
souvent often

Adverbs answer questions about the action: how? How much? When? And where? While most adverbs in French and English modify verbs, they can also modify other adverbs as well as adjectives.

verb modified by adverb: écoute attentivement listen carefully
adverb modified by adverb: trop lentement too slowly
adjective modified by adverb: extrêmement silencieux extremely quiet

Note: It is common in non-standard English for speakers to use adjectives in place of adverbs.
