What is the adverb ‘very’ modifying in this sentence?
The cat moved very slowly and scared the small mouse.
The adverb is modifying the adverb ‘slowly’. Adverbs also modify adverbs like “very” !

Thanks dude !

Thursday, July 26th 2012

So, as a rule of thumb, adverbs only comes before VERBS. They always come after everything else (adverbs, adjectives, and verbs with frequency). Correct?

I was thinking about a simple question.What it will happen when we have a sentence with MORE than a ADVERB?.Will it be a kind of ORDER with them?… Which will it be?,if it were possible.-RICARDO FROM azul,aRGENTINA.-

Thursday, August 30th 2012

I´m repeating!!I was thinking about a simple question:what it will happen when we have a sentence with more thanm an ADVERB?.Will it be a kind of ORDER WITH THEM?… wHICH will it be?,if it were possible.-Ricardo,from AZUL,Argentina.-

Monday, September 24th 2012

It’s really clear. Before i saw this video, i ever used adverbs modifying noun as well. so embarrassing.

Wednesday, September 26th 2012

Is there a danger of “over-editing” a mcinsarupt? I’ve never written a novel (I think the idea scares me stoopid – all that planning and writing and brain cell destruction), but even for short pieces, the editing process seems a little daunting, trying to objectively improve your own work. I think even with time and space to breathe, it must be hard to see where and how to improve a mcinsarupt.When I have written my first draft novel, I’ll let you know how the editing goes.The “bird’s eye view” technique is a good concept. I’m going to use that for editing a couple of flash pieces.Adam

Friday, March 21st 2014

what is the adverb “very” modifying in this sentence?
“Very” is adj, teacher. i think “it” should be change to “slowly”. i think someone typed wrong word when accessing databases.

Tuesday, April 15th 2014

    OH, sorry! i have already looked up for it and found it out. In that instance, it’s abverb and modifying slowly. I thought the abverb was “slowly” before. Sorry for that!

    Tuesday, April 15th 2014

I Love your QUIZ very much it is very useful

Wednesday, June 4th 2014


Wednesday, June 4th 2014

Sunday, July 20th 2014

Perfect, Thx u so much

Tuesday, August 19th 2014

2 averbs together it is possible? “so” and “badly” together it’s seem strange for me grammmaticaly!! and for you what do you think?

Friday, October 3rd 2014

    is “so” an adverb?

    Tuesday, July 21st 2015

James really teaches well. He explains very well. Now I need to use lot more adjectives….lol Its pleasant experience to unlearn bad English and make language more comfortable, so that others understand better what we speak.

Monday, October 20th 2014

Thanks Mr James for youe efforts. But would you please speak slowly

Thursday, November 20th 2014

thanks James for this lesson. Now I now a little bit more about adverbs because of you.

Friday, November 28th 2014

I get 9/10 without watching the video :D

Wednesday, December 10th 2014

James, I got 100.

When you talked about words that end in “ly”
but they’re not adverbs,I remembered a sentence,
not very bright, that I made up when I was 15.

Don’t laugh, but here it goes:
” She’s lovely, lively and friendly,butI think
she’s a bit lonely and silly.”
And ” The governament should look after the
elderly properly.”

Well, so far, I have never forgotten that these
end in “ly” however they are adjectives not

I like to memorize the things I learn using my
own stuff.

Does the sentence look silly for you?

I hope it helps other students.

Wednesday, December 31st 2014

Bright is an adj. not an adv. …Why in the sentence ‘a bright red coat’ bright is considered as an adv. ?

Monday, May 11th 2015

    Here, bright is modifying the adjective red. The coat isn’t bright; the shade of red is.

    Monday, May 11th 2015

      I have another question….Isn’t there difference between ‘a brigh red coat’ and ‘ a brightly red coat’ ?

      Tuesday, May 12th 2015
Saturday, July 18th 2015
